It's equivalent in content to the code that resides in the /usr file system on a system running AIX.It also contains the code needed to generate the boot images (kernels, which will be stored in the /tftboot directory) that the client uses until it can mount the SPOT over NFS.
We use debug-enabled network boot images to determine which routes could not be defined.
Essentially the SPOT is a /usr filesystem just like the one on your NIM master.
Everything that a machine requires in a /usr file system, such as the AIX kernel, executable commands, libraries, and applications are included in the SPOT.
