Hi,

i have AIX server AIX1 and have full backup for this server using tsm...i make mksysb image for AIX1 and restore it to AIX2...now i want to restore my files and application from AIX1 to AIX2...
i used the GUI webclient for AIX1 and choose all the FS which i want restore then rediect them to AIX2...it was working fine but then it stopped with Message(Disk Full)!!!

i'm sure that i have enough disk space in AIX2...i also tried to restore FS one by one instead of choosing them in one single job..but i got the same message (disk full)...

i dont know what the problem here...and i want to fix it...
please if the solution contains command lines explain it in details as i'm not fimilar with AIX os..
thanks.

Hi,
don't choose 'Active and inactive files".
Should you need to restore some inactive files along wit the active ones, use the 'point-in-time' method.

hi,

my restoration was perfect now..i used mksysb in my second server(AIX2)...and then use this command :

#dsmc rest fromnode=node1 subdir=yes /(FS on node1)/* /(FS on node2)/

I did it for each FS and it was working fine.now AIX2 is identical to AIX1.
