Well, I'm positive that the tcpip setting were added with SMIT, and
I'm restoring to the same machine I backed up, and it still didn't
work. Twice I've tried it, and twice everyone has told me that I
'should' have worked.
any other thoughts.

Right, I should have been more detailed. What I meant to ask was once
my system has been restored it has no knowledge of any imported VG's.
I don't need the other VG's restored, but I was expecting to see them
with a lsvg command. The other VG's are imported from a SSA drawer,
but everytime i restore the mksysb, i have to re-import them. is this
