NIM and Error 0042-157 (How to recreate bootimage in /tftpboot?)

NIM and Error 0042-157 (How to recreate bootimage in /tftpboot?)


I have configure my nim master (smit nim_config_env).
I have define my client (smit nim_mkmac) and the bosinst ressource.

I want to proceed to an automatic installation (smit nim_bosint). But, I have always this error:


0042-001 nim: processing error encountered on "master":
0042-001 m_alloc_boot: processing error encountered on "master":
0042-157 c_alloc_boot: unable to access the "/tftpboot/spot1.chrp.mp.ent" file

How can I recreate this bootimage?

(nim -o check spot1, doesn't work & rebuild network bootimage recreate bootimage in /usr/lpp/sysback...)

RE: NIM and Error 0042-157 (How to recreate bootimage in /tftpboot?)

I finally found it.

nim -Fo check spot1

I forgot the F flag.
