Re: NIM client rebuild failing2012-12-06T19:24:47Z in response to k3tanYou may need to call IBM to interpret those codes. 888 is a system crash.
Were there any follow up codes in the display?
What version of AIX in on the mksysb and what machine type/model are you trying to install it on?

Re: NIM client rebuild failing2012-12-06T23:12:23Z in response to k3tanHi
code is probably 888-102-700-0c2
This shows system halt with sw issue and a dump is in progress
I had this and it was related to permissions on /etc/exports
I think I reset nim and the perms on /etc/exports and all was okay. There was a fair bit of useful information on google as I remember.
