Can someone explain to this relative newb the difference between using -m and -i with mksysb? I know -m does what -i does, plus more.
Like many or most I create mksysbs of my rootvgs for restore/DR purposes. I use 'mksysb -i' and that works fine. Should I be using -m instead? Any benefit to do so?

Re: mksysb -i vs. mksys -m2012-11-23T15:04:14ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.I think the mksysb and mkszfile man pages explain it well enough. The -m creates the logical to physical map files. If you need to have specific locations of your logical volumes on the disks, then do use the map files option.
