9000/E35 data recovery

Hi, I have an 9000/E35 that lost the boot drive but my data drive is still good. I have an identical machine with a fresh 10.2 install that I would like to put the data drive into. Is it as easy as popping in the drive and creating a new lvol to access my data or will it destroy my data on my second drive? If it will destroy the data how would I go about doing this?

any help would be appreciated

Hi Jesse,

A few days back I saw this answer from Denver Osborn.

This should work on a 10.20 system too.


Hope this helps,

Jesse: is this an LVM disk? If so, you should be able to have LVM on the new system find it with a 'vgscan'. You can use 'vgimport' to import it into your working system.

See the man pages for these two commands, for details and gotchas. There are also numerous posts in these forums (more in the hp-ux section than here in the server section), which have the step-by-step process, if you need that.

Here are a couple:
