Fileset installation states

Fileset installations can be in either an Applied or a Committed state.

The two fileset installation states have the following properties:
Applied installations create backups of the filesets that are being replaced. These backups can be used to revert updates.
All installation actions, either through released content or custom content that is generated by the AIX Deployment Wizard, are done in the applied state.
Note: Reverting technology level updates is not supported by AIX and might have unexpected results.
Committed installations have no backups and cannot be reverted.
Commit applied installations after confirmation to free up the disk space that is used by the installation backups.
The Commit Applied Filesets Fixlet can be used to facilitate the process for the committed state.
