Make Tape Recovery Command (IGNITE)

I've seen so many make_tape_recovery commands with different options and such, ie:

"/opt/ignite/bin/make_tape_recovery –a /dev/rmt/0mn -I -t "Make recovery of system `uname -n` on `date`" -v -x inc_entire=vg00"
(the above didn't work for me at all!!!"

So,
What is the correct make_tape_recovery command (with options) to get a "GOLDEN IMAGE" of my vg00? I'm running 11.23.

Thank you!

Re: Make Tape Recovery Command (IGNITE)

Thank you for all the responses & links, but what is the sure fire command (without sifting thru all the docs) that I will get a good "GOLDEN IMAGE" of a rp7420 (non partitioned system) to a DDS tape drive?

Re: Make Tape Recovery Command (IGNITE)

The idea is

"...A golden image is a combination of a golden archive (an archive with files set to the newconfig state) and a configuration file describing a systemâ s disk layout and file system.
A golden image is used as a common configuration to install systems..."

(Admin Guide)


So you create it on the ignite server and do some modifications there.


Hope this helps!

Re: Make Tape Recovery Command (IGNITE)

In other words - you cannot create a golden image with a single command.


Read chapter

14 Creating Your Own Boot and Installation Media


for how-to.

Hope this helps!

Re: Make Tape Recovery Command (IGNITE)

>> make_tape_recovery -a /dev/rmt/0mn -x inc_entire=vg00


It's OK for backup, but It's *not* a golden image!

Hope this helps!
