Mksysb restore problem

Hello everybody,

I have a little problem with my mksysb restore. My system: AIX 6100-09-11-1806.

I make mksysb backup of my LPARs by NIM server. I am doing restore tests by NIM server on spare LPAR now. All LPARs were restored allright except for one.
During restore it stops with this message:

Code:

   ID#        OPTION
     1        Continue
     2        Perform System Maintenance and Then Continue
   Enter ID number:

When I try continue, it fails and reboot.

Original LPAR is in normal state. I can create next mksysb backup, but during restore it ends with the same message.

I dont have much experince with direct ODM management, but CuDv looks normal too. It is accessible and odmget returns info.

Please post the exact mksysb you ran for both backup and restore.

Also, don't forget to record the exit status for each, for completeness:

Code:
Exit Status
This command returns the following exit values:
Item	Description
0	The command completed successfully.
1	An error in the mksysb command use occurred.
2	An error in the savevg command use occurred. The savevg is a link to mksysb.
3	An error occurred before any file systems were mounted.
4	Exit because of trap.
5	Exit because there was no space.
6	Exit because a volume group name was not valid.

I'll start by saying that I'm not an AIX user or familiar with mksysb but I found this (old) page which has people discussing some of the exact same error lines that you are getting:

restore mksysb 5.2 ml01 - IBM: AIX - Tek-Tips

I don't know whether it is relevant (and apologies if it isn't) and I certainly can't help you further, but I'm sure there's more than enough AIX expertise on here to chip in if it is relevant.

Good luck with it.

Thank you. I found this old page too. This is one of the few pages where exactly this error lines are.
Unfortunately that page didn't help me.

I setup all my LPARs same way. No errors during mksysb creation. So far I have test recovered only a third of my LPARs -> 1 insurmountable problem. I am a little scared that there will be more of this anomaly.

Content of my /etc/niminfo. But it is also same on other LPARs.
