Create new server from mksysb without customised config files

Create new server from mksysb without customised config files

I would like to duplicate a nim client that has a lot of IBM software products installed, Websphere, HACMP, TSM etc.
It is easy enough to clone the system or install using the mksysb from the source system, but is it possible to do a fresh install of AIX along with the installed products and leave all the customised entries in configuration files behind, such as /etc/inittab, /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin/dsm.sys etc using the mksysb from the source system.
Or can I create an lppsource and spot from the mksysb and install from those?
