Define Installation Resources

The first resource to create is a generic mksysb image.
# ls -l /export/mksysb/*/*mksb
-rw-r--r--    1 root     system   2252595200 Mar 02 16:11 /export/mksysb/6106/6100-06-01-1043.mksb

# nim -o define -t mksysb -a server=master -a location=/export/mksysb/${OSLEVEL}/`oslevel -s`.mksb mksb_${OSLEVEL}_generic

# lsnim
master                  machines        master
boot                    resources       boot
nim_script              resources       nim_script
n392                    networks        ent
mksb_6106_generic     resources       mksysb

The classic NIM resources: lpp_source and spot

# nim -o define -t lpp_source -a server=master -a source=/dev/cd0 -a location=/export/${OSLEVEL}/lpp lpp_${OSLEVEL}

Preparing to copy install images (this will take several minutes)...

/export/6106/lpp/RPMS/ppc/cdrecord-1.9-7.aix5.2.ppc.rpm
/export/6106/lpp/RPMS/ppc/mkisofs-1.13-4.aix4.3.ppc.rpm
/export/6106/lpp/RPMS/ppc/expect-5.42.1-3.aix6.1.ppc.rpm
/export/6106/lpp/RPMS/ppc/tcl-8.4.7-3.aix6.1.ppc.rpm

....
/export/6106/lpp/installp/ppc/Java5_64.sdk.5.0.0.345.I
/export/6106/lpp/installp/ppc/Java5.sdk.5.0.0.345.I
/export/6106/lpp/installp/ppc/ICU4C.rte.6.1.6.0.I
/export/6106/lpp/installp/ppc/DirectorPlatformAgent.6.2.0.1.I
/export/6106/lpp/installp/ppc/DirectorCommonAgent.6.2.0.1.I

Now checking for missing install images...

All required install images have been found. This lpp_source is now ready.

# nim -o define -t spot -a server=master -a source=lpp_${OSLEVEL} -a location=/export/${OSLEVEL}/spot spot_${OSLEVEL}       

 Creating SPOT in "/export/6106/spot" on machine "master" from "lpp_6106" ...
