I do it this way:
1. HMC management
2. Back up HMC data
3. Select "Send back up critical data to remote site"
4. Put in LPAR ip address, user name, password. I use a folder in the IFS to store three versions of the backup
I also do to a USB stick as well.

Subject: How to back up HMC to disk on IBM i lpar
Since my hmc backup keeps filling the dvd I am looking at backing it up to a stream file on an IBM i lpar instead. How would I go about doing that?
