Signal 11 is a segment violation. This sounds like a bug - you should contact IBM support.

Hello inbisit,

This error can mean different things depending on what NIM operation is being performed at the time.  What were you doing when the error occured?

Regards,

Anything we do in Nim causes the error, our Unix / Catia systems administrator left so i have sort of been forced to learn Catia and AIX. I have used Nim for two years but never had this error before. I am seriously thinking about buidling a new Nim server from scratch

Scott,

GIven that all NIM functions give this error, you'd have a couple of options.   Building a new NIM server would be one option.  Another would be to apply the latest updates for the NIM filesets to the existing NIM server.  A third option would be to de-install the NIM filesets on the existing NIM server and re-install them, which is almost the same as number 1 with the exception being you would not have to recreate all your resources, you could just pull them in to the new config.

 Thanks for that i cant get any help of anyone googling AIX problems. I have 5 AIX courses and Catia coming up to try and give me a better understanding. We have two identical Nim servers same name and IP on two networks one secure and one not. The only thing different is the mksysb, spot and LLP source.

I have imaged the server image onto another box (so i have a new nim server) Is there any way of installing the hard drives out of the old problem server to copy the data across? We have had a look at LVG and JFS but its all related to new LVG creation

As you can imagine being dropped into this position is a problem

Regards

Scott,

If the old disks are also in rootvg, it would be very cumbersome to add the old drives to the new box.  If they are in a separate volume group, and that volume group does not exist on the new server, it isn't so bad.  Do you know how to check this in AIX?   If not, I can provide instructions.

Not a clue to be honest, when our Unix / Catia administrator was here i used Nim to install images on clients,but never did any server builds or system management apart from adding users etc. So any help at all would be appreciated, as i am on another learning curve. My email address is smarsden@assystemuk.com if you need to contact me direct.

Scott,

Ok, let's start with lsvg.  That will tell you what volume groups are on the system.  If only rootvg is returned from this command, that tells us all we need.  If more than rootvg are returned, then we want to do an lsvg -l on each vg that is on the system to determine which vg the NIM data are in.

I have just imaged the identical server off the other network, i have to edit the rc.nfs file to get the machine to boot.

First problem is I got an error just after boot 25c3a002 not sure if its a firmware error or the system planner has gone.. I will try what you suggested when i get the machine to boot.

At this moment in time i have 1 hard drive in the new server which the image on. The two hard drives out of the broken server are out ready to get the data off

Is it a big job to build a 44p170 with AIX v5 on and Nim or has it to be the same version of nim as the mksysb's and spots are?

Sorry to be a pain but the management here think its just a few minute job

Scott,

The NIM server has to be at or above the highest level image you'll install from it.
