Ignite network setup

Hello,

 

I just finished configuring a cold install of 11.31. I would like to make a base image before i start installing and configuring other things. I have no tape drive nor writeable dvd. How can i make an image of my server?

 

Ideally i would like to store this image on a NFS share running on linux. I am looking for ways to do the back up and be able to later restore this image. I only have 1 rp3410 available so i dont have any other HP-UX system available. 

 

I was thinking on something like this:

- Do the image back up and store it on a linux server on an NFS share.

- If i need to restore the server, boot to a DVD/CD that can do igniteUX commands and use the NFS mount point and image as the source for the restore. 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.
