NIM problem

When I use NIM to reinstall a AIX 5.3 use mksysb

It shows error:


Command: failed stdout: yes stderr: no

Before command completion, additional instructions may appear below.

Did you allocate the SPOT?


# lsnim -c resources hostname

Or use SMIT to look at the installation resources assigned to that system

Once your installation failed you have to explicitly deallocate the resources - do it always with the "-F" (force) option, otherwise you get some nasty and strange side effects.

Oh, one more: if you export the NIM directories yourself and then allocate resources (which includes exporting them via NFS) chances are the NFS export gets stuck. Do a "showmount -e" and have a look at which directories are exported.
