That requires that you be able to login from your ignite server to the remote target without a password by using .rhosts remotely or /etc/hosts.equiv remotely.

On remote host put the following into /.rhosts

ignite_server_name root

then chmod 600 /.rhosts

Now all root sessions on ignite_server_name can login to remote host without password ( including the ignite GUI ).

Make entry in .rhosts file under / directory
& run the command

make_net-recovery -v -s -a
host_name-archive:/path_dir -x inc_entire=/dev/vg00

-s Ignite-UX_server


Specifies the hostname of the Ignite-UX server. The
configuration files, defaults and contents files for the
client system will be written to the Ignite-UX server in
/var/opt/ignite/clients/0xLLA/recovery. The
make_net_recovery tool will NFS mount the per-client
directory to access this information.

-a archive_server:archive_directories


Specifies the NFS server and location onto which to store
the archive. The archive directory must be NFS exported (see the section Exporting Archive Directory), and sufficient
disk space is required. The default is the hostname of the Ignite-UX server followed by the directory which holds the
archive, e.g.,
Serverhost:/var/opt/ignite/recovery/archives/hostname. The hostname is the name of the system being archived. Each make_net_recovery client will create a subdirectory named for the client hostname under the specified directory to
store the archives.

You need to add your client machine in remote ignite server & should have the passwd less login in client from ignite.

Once, it's done, then in nfs exported ignite folder, you can take a backup:

make_net_recovery -s -a ignite:/nfs_folder -A

You can push the Ignite image using the GUI but you must have root access -- after all, you are going to destroy the running system and install a new one.

Or you can connect to the remote server's GSP/MP port, reset the machine and then interrupt the boot process to boot from the Ignite server. You still need to quiesce the system and ideally, un-mount all the non-vg00 disks to ensure clean data.

I would never try any remote installs (push or pull) without remote access to the GSP/MP port.
