HP MirrorDisk/UX vs PartitionManager

Hi All

On HPUX 11i v1 and VA7100, we have 1 x VG (Volum Group) and 3 x LV (Logical Volum) we want to add disks and extend our three LV but we don’t have HP MirrorDisk/UX installed, we only have PartitionManager (B.11.11.01.06)
Our questions are:

1- When we vreate new LUN X, the system will automatically create PV or we must use pvcreate to create new PV on X

2- if we can do that with HP PartitionManager ? How ?

3- If not what version of MirrorDisk/UX we must install?


Regards

Re: HP MirrorDisk/UX vs PartitionManager

If you create an present LUNs, you need to do an ioscan and insf to make it visible on the host.

Then you can pvcreate, vgextend and lvextend.

Re: HP MirrorDisk/UX vs PartitionManager

Forgot to say, the partition manager is something completely different. This is for managing nPartitions (device a server into independent partitons (servers) - has nothing to do with disks.

You don't need mirror/us for extending VGs.

Hope this helps!

Hi

Thanks for your responses.

We don't need MirrorDisk/UX to extend LV ? We can do it without MirrorDisk/UX ? How ?

Re: HP MirrorDisk/UX vs PartitionManager

Hello,

as Thorsten already said this little rule of three should work: pvcreate, vgextend and lvextend.

Take a look at the manpages or additional documentation.

Best regards,
