Re: VA 36GB * 5 Disk (One VG)

Hi,

Let say i have five disk

1)/dev/dsk/c1t1d1
2)/dev/dsk/c1t1d2
3)/dev/dsk/c1t1d3
4)/dev/dsk/c1t1d4
5)/dev/dsk/c1t1d5

#pvcreate /dev/rdsk/c1t1d1 ....... upto c1t1d5


Create the volume group

vgcreate -l 255 -p 64 -s 16 /dev//dev/dsk/ <-- create the volume group with initial disk devices
-l sets the maximum number of logical volumes for the volume group
-p sets the maximum number of physical volumes for the volume group
-s sets the physical extent size

/dev/ is the volume group directory
/dev/dsk/diskid are the physical volumes to be added to the volume group
vgcreate /dev/rman_bkp /dev/dsk/c1t1d1 /dev/dsk/c1t1d1

vgextend /dev/vgxx /dev/dsk/diskid <-- adds additional disk devices to the volume group

After this i am going to create LV of 180GB for backp .............This process is OK or need any fine tuning expert overview needed
