Receiving a chcons Error When Running a mksysb Clone


OS Level: AIX Version 4.1.5
Type/Model: 590


While running a clone, the following message displays when selecting the tape drive to be installed:
chcons: /dev/tty0 will be assigned as the console.  This will be effective
on next system reboot.
The install subsequently hangs at the LED display C46 (normal install processing).


The console field of the file of the mksysb tape causes this error. Run the following series of commands to correct the problem:
rm /
rm /var/adm/ras/
mksysb -i /dev/rmt0
Rerun the clone, and afterward, the problem should be solved.
