Adding a fileset to a SPOT

For example, if you wish to add the bos.alt_disk_install.rte fileset to a SPOT:

List the available spots:
# lsnim -t spot | grep 61
SPOTaix61tl05sp03     resources       spot
SPOTaix61tl03sp07     resources       spot
List the available lpp sources:
# lsnim -t lpp_source | grep 61
LPPaix61tl05sp03       resources       lpp_source
LPPaix61tl03sp07       resources       lpp_source
Check if the SPOT already has this file set:
# nim -o showres SPOTaix61tl05sp03 | grep -i bos.alt
No output is shown. The fileset is not part of the SPOT. Check if the LPP Source has the file set:
# nim -o showres LPPaix61tl05sp03 | grep -i bos.alt
  bos.alt_disk_install.boot_images                    I  N usr
  bos.alt_disk_install.rte                    I  N usr,root
Install the first fileset (bos.alt_disk_install.boot_images) in the SPOT. The other fileset is a prerequisite of the first fileset and will be automatically installed as well.
# nim -o cust -a filesets=bos.alt_disk_install.boot_images
-a lpp_source=LPPaix61tl05sp03 SPOTaix61tl05sp03
Note: Use the -F option to force a fileset into the SPOT, if needed (e.g. when the SPOT is in use for a client). 

Check if the SPOT now has the fileset installed:

# nim -o showres SPOTaix61tl05sp03 | grep -i bos.alt
  bos.alt_disk_install.rte C F Alternate Disk Installation
