That's correct, for archive, you need to specify what you want to archive. You can still do it in one line:
dsmc archive / /usr /var /tmp /home /opt /admin

Since you are talking about the rootvg under AIX, would a mksysb be better? Then archive the mksysb to TSM? That way if ever needed you could restore the mksysb iso file, burn to dvd or create a resource on your nim server from it then boot the (or a different) AIX machine in question.
If a mksysb is not an option, then what marclant posted above would work. Just keep in mind you might get a lot of files that won't archive properly as they could be in use (unless you are using open file support, which I've not tried under AIX).

Hope it helps.
