A "Image backup" is the process of using vdump to take a backup of all operating system data, that is, the output of the df command, normally included:

/
/usr
/var

Use the vrestore to restore the data if needed. See:

"Backing Up and Restoring Data" and "Recovering from Data Corruption of an AdvFS root Domain" in "AdvFS Administration" available at:

Thanks!!

But as I make one restore of backup image through boot?

In operational system AIX (IBM), I use I command mksysb. If I to leave the media in it tape drive and to restart the server, automatically restore of the operational system is executed.

Vdump functions in the same way?

Thanks!!!

No, you have another option, that is to use the btcreate command.

With vdump/vrestore you have to start with the installation cd, manually repartition the disks, and restore your data.

BTW, welcome to the forum, please take a look at:

Hello!!

The command btcreate cause some type of interruption of the tasks of the server?
