Have a look at the 5.1 technical guide redbook. It has a sample script (which
I wrote :) to do this.

See section 5.1.2 "HACMP support for the B/A client on AIX" for the details,
but specifically page 199, "An alternative configuration....", with the
script described on page 201.

At run-time the script selects all "rootvg" filesystems to backup to the
normal node name, and all "non-rootvg" filesystems to backup to a cluster
node name. It will probably require some modification to suit your filesystem
layout, etc.
