VXVM setup in HP UX : How to ??

1. Run vxinstall to initialize at least one disk in rootdg.


2. Then  run vxdiskadm to add other disks


3. Create a /etc/vx/disks.exclude file if you want some disks to be excluded from vxvm

4. The files /etc/vx/cntrls.exclude and /etc/vx/disks.exclude are for the controllers and disks which will be  

    excluded to be used by vxinstall or vxdiskadm so the disks under that controllers or the sepcified disks

    will not be included to any Disk Group. But all the other commmands will work

5. To determine whether the volume daemon is enabled, use the following

  # vxdctl mode

6. To enable the volume daemon, use the following command:
  #vxdctl enable

7. To start the vxconfigd daemon, use the following command:

8. Verify that vxiod daemons are running by entering this command:

9. If no vxiod daemons are currently running, start some by entering this

  # vxiod set 10

    where 10 can be substituted by the desired number of vxiod daemons. It is recommended that at least one

   # vxiod daemon exist for each CPU in the system.

Initial Setup

1. Place disks under Volume Manager control.
2. Create new disk groups (if you do not want to use rootdg or you want other disk groups).
3. Create volumes.
4. Put file systems in volumes.
