I need to install Aix6.1 on a backup server for our enviroment but need to run the install so the DVD media references a tapes backup of our production server which has all of the customization needed in place. I have never done this before and have the following questions.

1) I ready have a backup of the production server using a Tivilo Sysback backup. When I boot from the DVD what options to I select so the install references the tape?

2) I have note configured any of the hard drives (i.e: setup softare mirroring etc..) When I run the install from tape will the hard drives be setup the same software raid configuration as the production server automatically?

Any other tips I should be aware of???
