Re: How to backup and restore LSM boot disk

Hi,
why do you want to restore the boot disk?
Is the machine still running?

greetings,

Michael

Hi again,

something more. These procedure are described in the Logical Storage Manager Docs. If your system if still running you may want to create a bootable tape with btcreate.

greetings,
