Update Status 119 Killed Over Mounting during MKSYSB restore

Hi all experts - We have an AIX 5.2 system that we are trying to restore a MKSYSB tape to from an identicale system. We want to have this server handy for DR if needed. When we run a restore from a known good MKSYSB we get the following error:
At about 87% of the restore we get about half an hour of this error.
Update_Status [119]: <a random 4 digit number> Killed Over Mounting /

The steps we are taking are booting to the AIX CD (disk 1) and running the Restore system from backup option.
We are not very knowlegable with UNIX, so if you have any suggestions please include the syntax.

Thanks!

That type of messages usually indicates you booted from an AIX version with a maintenance level lower than the mksysb image you're trying to restore.  To correct this boot from base media that has a maint level the same or higher as the version of the mksysb tape and re-do the clone.

Just to be more specifiec,  boot from an AIX base media CD that has the same or higher maintenance level than the version of the mksysb tape, and then select "install from system backup". That should do the trick.  

AIX media gets refreshed, typically when a new ML gets released. If you have a paid up software subscription or the newer AIX maintenance fee paid up, you are entitled to get refreshed media at no charge.

We downloaded what we thought was the latest maintenance level that the server was at but it is larger then a single CD. Is there a way to create a bootable CD with the maintenance level we downloaded?

Thanks again for the help
