Doc Text:
Rear includes backup archive in the rescue CD ISO image Previously, Relax-and-Recover (ReaR) did not include the backup archive in the rescue CD ISO image when run on the IBM Power Systems architecture. As a consequence, rescue CDs could not be used for restoring the system when the internal backup method was used. This update adds the backup archive into the rescue CD ISO image. As a result, rescue CDs can now be used to restore the system with internal backup method.
