What is your backup strategy on p570?  How often do you make mksysb?
p570 has DVD-RAM on it, and rootvg mksysb is over 14GB.  The largest DVD-RAM is 9.4GB per media.  
What is your recommendation?

14GB is very large for a rootvg - sounds like you may have some data files in there as well as AIX. If you can't economise on the size of rootvg it is time to buy a tape drive or back up over the network.

>> back up over the network

Are you using Winsows Servers or something else?

I would suggest following guidelines:

1. Delete all user files from your rootvg and store them on other vg (home directories also). This should reduce your mksysb to fit on one DVD.
2. Make mksysb every time you make major system configuration and software installation.
