backup NIM client

Hello everyone

I would like to hear your opinions about this procedure to backup a client to my nim master

1.-I got a cron that make a mksysb from x machine
2.-This mksysb I send by ftp to my nim master.
3.-When I got it in the nim master machine. I create a mksysb resource from this mksysb, I do this

Perform NIM Administration Tasks => Manage Resources => Define a Resource
Next, select “mksysb” as the resource type.

* Resource Name [this name come from my mksysb that put by ftp]
* Resource Type mksysb
* Server of Resource [master]
* Location of Resource [your path export/xxx/xxx/this name come from my mksysb that put by ftp]

Now I got a mksysb resource from a client in my nim master

My questions are

If I got a problem with the partition that I got a mksysb in my nim master. I can boot with the nim and restore by this mksysb.

do you have another way to do this.

The idea in general is, I got mksysb from my partitions I send by ftp to my nim master and then create a mksysb resource and If I got a problem with some one I can restore by nim.

Thanks for your tips

This sounds all unnecessarily complicated to me: create the mksysb directly on the NIM master as a NIM resource and you don't have to ftp it around and create a NIM resource from a file.

If you got the communication between NIM client and master set up correctly this is no problem.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the response bakunin

I tried to to that option too, but I got this message when I try to backup a client.


Command: failed stdout: yes stderr: no

Before command completion, additional instructions may appear below.

0042-001 nim: processing error encountered on "master":
0042-081 m_mkbosi: a resource already exists on "master" at
location "/export/nim/lpp_source/aix53TL7"; due to NFS export restrictions, the
