We verify that the resources specified for the operation are exported properly by checking the /etc/exports and /etc/xtab files on the server.

Also, we confirm that the resources have permissions set correctly for reading.

Because I have a separate LUN for NIM, it's possible to increase the filesystem when necessary. rm: removing /nim/lpp_source/lpp_5300_06_07/installp/ppc/sysmgtlib.

Be sure to check the output from the SPOT installation to verify that all the expected software was successfully installed.

First ensure that NFS is running on the master/resource server.During client install client needs to run commands (mkvg, mklv..), these commands are availabe in the SPOT.During the installation, the client machine NFS mounts this resource in order to access the code needed for the installation process.In case you need to increase the storage space needed for NIM data perform the following steps: Installation Summary -------------------- Name Level Part Event Result ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- bos.master USR APPLY SUCCESS bos.master USR COMMIT SUCCESS ---- end ---- Note: Before starting the initialization, make sure the NIM master can be resolved with the nameserver, for the A-record, as well as for the reverse record.
