To Display the Command Usage:


The backupx25 command saves information concerning the configuration and attribute information for a particular machine to assist you with system administration. This aids customers who want to re-install the X.25 LPP or want to replicate their setup to other machines, assuming the adapter and port information is the same. The files produced by the backupx25 command are read by the restorex25 command to restore your setup.

To reinstall the X.25 LPP, it is suggested that backupx25 is used to save configuration information, port definitions be removed, re-install the X.25 LPP and then restore the configuration using the restorex25 command.

To migrate ports from the base AIX Version 3 definitions to the new AIX/Link X.25 Version 1.1 definitions, see the cpx25 command.
