Hi again,

two ways:

1) via smitty
2) use the commandline

ad 1)

"smitty nim_mkres" -> (select mksysb) -> Fill in values for:
"Name" (an arbitrary resource name), "Server" ("master"), "Location" (a directory path on the NIM master),
"CREATE system backup image?" (Yes), "NIM CLIENT to backup" (your client node).
Hit <Enter>.
A NIM mksysb resource will be defined and populated with an mksysb image pulled from the client.

ad 2)

nim -o define -t mksysb -F -a server=master -a location=/directory/path -a mk_image=yes -a source=your_client_node arbitrary_resource_name
Hit <Enter>.
A NIM mksysb resource will be defined and populated with an mksysb image pulled from the client.

The values in italic must be provided by you and correspond to the respective values in the smit panel.
