The problem I have is that everything has a process and i do not have access to the DC or media so the solution for me to migrating the NIM master and exectuting in house packages / upgrade media / scripts is to use an alternate NIM master on the infrastructure.
There is NIM master at AIX 7.1 which has my NIM master configured as a client so my processure is to move the original /etc/niminfo file out of the way and execute niminit command to make this a client (or so my documentation says so)
/usr/sbin/niminit -a name=mynim -a master=71NIM -a master_port=1058
0042-376 niminit: This command cannot be executed on a NIM master
unless the "is_alternate" attribute is specified.
I execute the same command with the is_alternate flag and get the following
- /usr/sbin/niminit -a name=mynim -a master=71NIM-a master_port=1058 -a is_alternate=yes
is there a way to make mynim a client of 71NIM so I can perform an OS migration across the network?
Please note I am limitted with methods I can use due to the infrastructure setup and methologies that the client wants me to follow.
