An IBM i Network File System (NFS) client can perform save and restore operations using a virtual optical device type 632B model 003 that uses image files located on an NFS server. The NFS server can be configured on an IBM i or another platform that supports NFS. Special set up is required in order to use an NFS server with the IBM i save and restore interfaces.
Using virtual optical image files for a Network Install from NFS will require a secondary system to host the NFS server with the virtual optical image files. The virtual optical image files will need to be formatted as a NFS install image on the host NFS server.
