gencopy -L -d Media
The gencopy command is the wrapper to bffcreate and udisetup. It determines what images must be copied and calls the appropriate command. For ISJE or other types of images where the list of required files is unknown, all the files in the subdirectory are copied to the target location.
|-b bffcreateFlags||Specifies the following flags that are valid: l, q, v, w, and S.|
|-d Media||Specifies the device or directory where the install images exist. Media can be a device (/dev/cd0, /dev/rmt0) or directory.|
|-D||Calls bffcreate with the -D option, instructing it to remove images after the copy. This flag is not valid with non-installp images.|
|-f File||Specifies a file that contains a list of images to copy to the target location. ISJE and UDI images should be prefixed with a "J:" or "U:" respectively.|
|-L||Lists the install packages on the media. This listing is colon
separated and contains the following information:
bos.sysmgt:bos.sysmgt:bos.sysmgt.nim.client:126.96.36.199:I:R:Network Install Manager - Client Tools
bos.sysmgt:bos.sysmgt:bos.sysmgt.smit:188.8.131.52:I:R:System Management Interface Tool (SMIT)
|-t TargetLocation||Specifies the directory where the installation image files are stored. If the -t flag is not specified, the files are saved in the /usr/sys/inst.images directory.|
|-X||Extends the file system automatically if space is needed.|
To copy all of the image from a CD (/dev/cd0) to an LPP_SOURCE (/export/lpp_source/500) use, type:
gencopy -d /dev/cd0 -t /export/lpp_source/500 all
