Keeps prompting to remove network settings


  AIX 4.2.1
  RISC 590 and 390
  Tape 8mm 5gb

  Customer creates a full system backup on his 590 and
  then tries to restore it on his 390 system.
  It works correctly until the very end          

  Should Sysback be removed from this system  (Yes or No)

  Then it displays all the network attributes and repeats that
  over and over.

Action Taken:
   The customer shutdown the system and it rebooted fine, but
   the network attributes did not change and the customer did not
   ever get a chance to change those before he rebooted.

  This is a defect at sysback ver, it does not exist at anyother
  levels of sysback.  

  The fix is a very simple one:

  cd /usr/lpp/sysback/inst    
  cp sysinstall
  vi sysinstall
    Search for the word REMNET

    Change this line:

       if [  -z "$REMNET" ]

    To this:

       if [ ! -z "$REMNET" ]

(Just adding a "!"  shift 1 character)

Fix will be added to sysback.rte
