Re: VxVM

LVM is basically an HP-only volume manager whereas Veritas VxVM has cross-platform support which makes it more flexible for multi unix OS supporting shops. It also has a more extensive set of functions compared to LVM.

I or anyone else will not sit down and write the step-by-step instructions doing this or that on VxVM but this should not be a problem as VxVM cheat sheets are plenty arond the web.

Try one of these for instance:

http://www.blacksheepnetworks.com/security/resources/veritas/veritas_lvm_cs.htm
-or-
http://www.blight.com/~rick/veritas/cheat.html

I keep the first one printed next to my workstation personally.

Or you can search for more of them using google:

good luck
