How do I verify a mksysb in AIX 3.2

tctl -f /dev/rmt0.1 fsf 3
tar tvf /dev/rmt0.1

I'm assuming your tape drive is rmt0.

Or if your running AIX v4, change the 2nd tar to:
restore -Tvf/dev/rmt0.1

I believe that you always have to use the -s option on restore with a
no-rewind device.  Either

tctl -f /dev/rmt0.1 rewind    (just so that readers know where the tape is)
restore -s4 -Tvf/dev/rmt0.1

or

tctl -f /dev/rmt0.1 fsf 3
restore -s1 -Tvf/dev/rmt0.1

would work for the AIX v4 example.

1. big harddisk and mksysb on AIX 3.2

hi all,
does anybody have experience with bigger harddisk (9Gb) on AIX 3.2 ?
I want to exchange the old primary harddisk (320MB) containing the
rootvg with a new (9GB) one.
so I did a mksysb and boot with the tape, as descriped in the manuals.
The setup stops with the error message:

[snip]
0516-050: lcreatevg:
Not enough descriptor area space left in this volume group. Either try
adding smaller PV or use another volume group.
0516-862: mkvg:
Unable to create volume group.
mkvg return code 1

I belive that I have to increase the page size from the the default 4MB
value, but I have less/no experience on AIX.
How can I do it manually ( its possible to get a shell ) and how do I
return to the BOS setup from shell ?
