Re: remove alternative path

Use vgreduce, example

vgreduce /dev/vg08 /dev/dsk/c49t0d4

and review with

vgdisplay -v vg08

Hope this helps!

Re: remove alternative path

Do we need to reduce one by one?

Re: remove alternative path

All but one physical volume can be removed - in one go.
If there is only one disk left, use vgremove.

Re: remove alternative path

You can also use "vgexport" to get rid of this VG.
