We are currently building a disaster recovery plan for our AIX 5.2 systems.
What is the best way to back up the system to tape?
Right now we are doing nightly mksysb backups M-F and a seperate nightly job that backs up user volumes.
Commands we are currently using:
For the rootvg
/usr/bin/mksysb -m -X -p /dev/rmt0
For other vg
savevg -f /dev/rmt0 othervg
I am relatively new to AIX and Unix, so any additional explaination provided is greatly appreciated.
