Autmoated mksysb does the below mentioned things. This will fetch the mksysb file-system under root volume group and it will exclude all the file-systems apart from root file-systems and modifies /etc/exclude.rootvg after taking backup of the same thing. This will take mksysb backup as a file, and push into centralized backup server. According to the requirement one can modify the script as per there AIX infrastructure 


Operating System AIX 4.3,5.1,5.2 and 5.3 

Interface should be on same LAN / WAN 

Fabric Operating System v5.2 

Other this script can be modified if any DMZ servers are there by removing ftp part. 



there is no limitations, as i have tested by restoring it through NIM.
