Just remember that mksysb and savevg are just front-ends for backup.
In other words, backups on AIX are organized by volume groups. mksysb is specialized for rootvg and savevg is used for other volume groups.
Ignoring that rootvg also creates files needed to boot a system... (1 Reply)

BACKUP_DELVOLSET(8) AFS Command Reference BACKUP_DELVOLSET(8)
backup_delvolset - Deletes one or more volume sets from the Backup Database
backup delvolset -name <volume set name>+ [-localauth]
[-cell <cell name>] [-help]
backup delvols -n <volume set name>+ [-l]
[-c <cell name>] [-h]
The backup delvolset command deletes each volume set named by the -name argument, and the volume entries each contains, from the Backup
Database. The backup listvolsets command lists the volume sets (and their volume entries) currently defined in the Backup Database.
Deleting a temporary volume set is possible only within the interactive session in which it was created. Exiting the interactive session
also destroys the temporary volume set automatically.
-name <volume set name>+
Names each volume set to delete.
Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The backup command interpreter presents it to
the Backup Server, Volume Server and VL Server during mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell argument. For more
details, see backup(8).
-cell <cell name>
Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see backup(8).
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
The following command deletes the volume set called user and all volume entries in it:
% backup delvolset user
The issuer must be listed in the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on every machine where the Backup Server is running, or must be logged
onto a server machine as the local superuser "root" if the -localauth flag is included.
