Restoring a mksysb Completes but Receives Segmentation Faults


OS Level: AIX Version 4.2.1
Type/Model: F50 or H50


A mksysb restores successfully despite receiving segmentation faults and core dumps during the process of restoring.


If the system has SSA disks, the problem occurs when the bootinfo -B command is run on the SSA disks during the restore. This causes the core dump.

The problem is resolved with APAR IX71985 which is in bos.chrp.base.rte in AIX Version
