How to backup / restore the NIM DB

The Network Installation Manager stores it’s DB in the AIX ODM.

The backup / restore process is fairly simple. Using the following fastpath:


smitty nim_backup_db

smitty nim_restore_db

The DB will be saved into the selected location.

The backup can also be performed using the CLI, backing up the following files:

/etc/niminfo
/etc/objrepos/nim_attr
/etc/objrepos/nim_attr.vc
/etc/objrepos/nim_object
/etc/objrepos/nim_object.vc
