Re: mksysb Linux alternative?2010-09-16T02:35:03Z in response to Miguel_SandersHello,
Actually, I think this subject bears revisiting. I work with a lot of existing AIX customers and get this question frequently. Given how long IBM has had influence over Linux and how long Linux has existed, it seems odd that we still do not have a simple, intuitive and free method for backing up the system to a gold image and restoring from a medium, such as a DVD-ROM, included with the OS. This appears to be a gap in our feature list and one which I don't think will ever go away.

I think Storix SBAdmin is one of the solution.
In Japan, technical sales team validated SBAdmin on Linux on Power environment and it works.
If your customer want to just use it, it's gonna be a good solution.
But, the support scheme is needed in your country, you must find the support vendor. (actually in Japan, there is no support vendor)
