I have an F50 running AIX 4.3.3. i have an image backup tape and a software backup tape. typically, does the image lay down the partitions and or vg's. or will i need to delete and recreate them prior to rebuilding? i have a kinda current sysmap that may help me out but i don't think any details about the failed drive is on there other than it coming up as defined.
thanks so much!!

If you mean that you have a mksysb, then yes, it does define the VGs and LVs.
