Mounting a AIX Volume on a V7000 to a Linux Host to GTAR the files

Hi Everyone,


We need to flashcopy an AIX volume on the V7000 to another FC_AIX Volume on the V7000.
We then want to mount that FC_AIX Volume to a Linux Host for the purpose of Zipping the files, Doing the tape Backup of the zipped files and then restoring to the DR Centre.


Is it possible to mount the FC_AIX Volume in Linux to a Linux Host?

Any help or direction would be appreciated...

I think you would have to use NFS for the mount... as the AIX volume is in a proprietary format (unless it happens to be a basic volume in jfs... but usually it is on top of an IBM logical volume which is not supported).
