URGENT --- Neebie Needs Help Creating a Clone Image of my Aix 5.3 server
First off I know very little about AIX so please bare with me...
Right now I have a production Aix 5.3 server that has boot a 'rootvg' & 'vol1' volumes.
Right now we run a daly 'sysback' of both volumes. We just got a new idential server that will be a DR server that I need to have ready to go ASAP. Here is my problem..
1) I have read that I can only restore the 'rootvg' from a 'mksysb' backup and that I need the orginall installation media to do so.
2) I do not have the orginal installation media and when I try to create a 'mksysb' backup on my production server I keep getting the following message: "cannot access /dev/rmt0 device is busy or write protect" which both are not true becuase this is a new tape..
3) Can I restore BOTH volumes from a 'sysback' image ???
