How to limit filesystems backed up by mksysb
ENV: AIX 3.2.5
DESC: Need to know how to exclude mounted filesystems from mksysb backup
ACTION: After testing, this can be accomplished as follows:
2. vi /.fs.size -- delete the lines for the filesystems that you
do not want included in your mksysb
3. mksysb \
NOTE: Mksysb will only backup the mounted filesystems that are listed
in the .fs.size file.
A problem could arise when you restore from the mksysb. Since
the filesystems are not listed in the .fs.size file, the
locial volumes/filesystems WILL NOT be created. Before
restoring data, the lvs/fs must be createad manually.
