mksysb Takes Long to Create the bootimage On Tape


OS Level: AIX Version 4.2.1
Type/Model: R50


When creating a mksysb backup, it takes twelve hours to create the bootimage on tape.


To fix this problem, ensure that the option Use DEVICE BUFFERS during write is set to yes. Also, make certain that the bosboot command runs to disk.
