IBM pSeries AIX HATE

[ #29835 ]

I've drawn the short straw and will have to test our DR procedure. Alas the version of AIX we are running can not be booted from it's mksysb DAT drive because of a bug. This leads to much pain in trying to get the box into Maintance Mode, from a CD instead, then loading the data from the tape at that point.

IBM I hate you, AIX I hate you, freezing cold server room I hate you...

  • I gather you don't have the HMC and other modern convenicences? How old or low-end is this pSeries?

    Was this ever the IBM recommended procedure back in the day? [Not in my 5 year memory of pSeries -- we're Lights Out in the server room for anything that doesn't require pulling glass or inserting cards. Of course, we spring for virtual console servers for even our commodity linux boxes.]

    It sounds like your DR is beyond cold-standby -- what are you oding, reloading a different image onto a DEV box?
