I'm considering to buy sysback product soon. Here are some questions if you 
don't mind..

― How would sysback make bootable CD if it doesn't fit into 1 CD? 
― Can I make mksysb and savevg on 1 set of CD? so that I don't even need to use 
TSM restore?   
― What kind of IBM product do you use as CD writer like external one? 
― Can you share CD writer from NIM master for other nim client machine?

Thanks,

Gus

Just a quick clarification:  sysback does not require nim.  I create and
use bootable tapes and CD's with sysback.  They are the core of my DR
processes.

I don't believe TSM has support for mksys
but it does have support for sysback which costs money, and it requires nim
configuration as well.
You could always backup your mksysb image to a disk flat file and backup
that file to tsm, but the problem
there is you use your system image. Unless you use it as the nim server and
configure bootp to use that
file. Just some ideas to play with. For system images though you'd need
sysback I believe.
thanks!.
