mksysb linux

I am working in AIX as well as Linux , now we have more then 150 Linux server & keep on increasing , (HP blade) , ( don't know good things are bad thing ) as the same time we have more then 1000 AIX server .

Before mksysb , we should think about alt_disk_backup for Linux like aix . so I created one tool which take backup of Linux OS VG , like we have in AIX alt_rootvg

after successfully implementation of alt disk tools , now i am looking for mksysb like tools in Linux .

however we have also TBMR for bare metal restore . but this not like mksysb , in this case we need always TSM servers to restore OS image .

As, i know , the biggest problem with Linux , that /boot can not be a part of root volume group , and second Linux LVM don't have concept like logical partition. ( as we have in AIX , we can assign (copy) three PP to one LP means mirroring .)
Hope one day above problem will solve in Linux
