Clone 1 Hard disk fromIBM Intellipoint server with AIX 5.x

Hello to all,
Im having a new task in a new world (AIX - IBM Servers)

I have an IBM Server (Type - 9111-285 very old one) with one Hard disk (73 GB 10 K) with AIX 5.x, and I need to clone the existing disk to another with the same specifications.

Could you please give me some advice in order to do that ?
Does exist some software to do that ?
Some hardware device that I could use ?

Any documentation, procedures, steps ?

Thanks in advance ?

Really Apreciated.

If your server has onlyy one disk it must have only one VG - "rootvg". You should see both disks as (perhaps) "hdisk0" and "hdisk1" when you enter:


Code:
lspv

If you don't see the second disk: run cfgmgr and if you still don't see it you have some hardware problem you need to fix because the system doesn't know about your disk.

Once you see the second disk you run:


Code:
extendvg rootvg hdisk1

to add the second disk to the rootvg and then run


Code:
mirrorvg rootvg hdisk1

which will create a mirror image of the first disk to the second. Update the boot image of the second disk by:


Code:
bosboot -ad hdisk1

and include the second disk into the bootlist of the hardware with:


Code:
bootlist -m normal hdisk0 hdisk1

I hope this helps.
