"Create Command-line"/"Schedule Operations" for VIOS backup/restore tasks via HMC
I want to utilize the new VIOS backup/restore option in the HMC. However, it currently only supports this via the GUI - I would like a way to schedule this operation and/or run a command-line command to do this so I can automate these tasks.
From Case: VIOS backup/restore tasks via HMC are GUI only tasks for now there is no native HMC command line to achieve that for now.
Technically the backup operation when performed from the HMC is going to call backupios/viosbr to initiate the backup of VIOS then try to scp the backup from the VIOS to the HMC under /data
