Question AIX mksysb error

Hi !! Hi !! Dear all :

I have some questions about IBM AIX v5r2.

When I use the following command:

/usr/bin/mksysb -i -X /dev/rmt0 to do a full system backup .

then display the following messages :

# mksysb -i -X /dev/rmt0

Creating information file (/ for rootvg.
/usr/bin/mksysb[17]: TMPSZ = 0 * 128 * SCHED : 0403-009 The specified number is not valid for this command.

Why ??

How to solve the prob and where to find the message's answer.
