Re: How to do mirror on External Storage-DS2300 ?

Hi Jospeh,

I know how to do the mirror ux on OS mirror. How about the external storage DS2300? Is same as the OS mirror. The situation is I had 8 disks in DS2300. i want use 4 hard disks to mirror another 4 hard disks.

to create a logical group with 4 physcial disks
#pvcreate -f /dev/rdsk/C0t2d0 /dev/rdsk/C1t2d0 /dev/rdsk/C3t2d0 /dev/rdsk/C4t2d0


and use vgextend command to create the volume group?

Once completed, I create the file system and mount the file system and new volume group.

After use lvextend to mirror another 4 hard disks ?

Best regards
Leon
#vgextend
