AIX 3.1 restore program on AIX 1.2?

AIX 3.1 restore program on AIX 1.2?

Post by Bjorn Engs » Thu, 23 Jan 1992 23:44:33



Does anybody know of the existense of a restore (and possibly backup)
program that runs on AIX 1.2 but understands the AIX 3.1 restore format?

Thanks for any help,

Bjorn.

Use the -o option on AIX 3.x to write tapes that backup on AIX 1.2 or the RT
can understand. the other way round should be no problem.

    I run AIX 1.2 at home and 3.2 at work and I use tar to transport files
    between them -- I havn't tried using anything else since this works.

1. AIX 1.2 is dead (was X server for PS/2 XGA under AIX 1.2)


I have heard from my spies in IBM (comments invited to confirm or deny):

1. PS/2 AIX is dead (no more new versions, except for bug fixes).

2. AIX has not been certified for the PS/2 90 and 95.

3. AIX will never be certified to work on the model 90 and 95.

4. Not said to me, but a conclusion of (3) is no support for XGA.

5. The only way to run Unix on the model 90 and 95 and have IBM's
   blessing is to run SCO's Open Desktop, with which IBM have a licensing
   agreement.

6. Future Unix versions for IBM PS/2s may be SCO's ODT or something similar
   from a joint development between IBM and SCO.

3. Berkeley dump/restore compatability in AIX 3.1

4. sun hardware internals

5. perl 4.010 under AIX 3.1 (3003) and AIX 3.1.5

7. Malloc AIX 3.1 vs. AIX 3.2

8. swapping java SDK versions. right way?

9. NFS mounting from within program (AIX 1.2)

11. Restoring AIX Volume group device files w/out restoring VG's?

12. Anyone compiled X11R5 on a ps2/aix 1.2(.1)?

13. What is the status of X11R4 for AIX 1.2?
