Does vgchange, lvmerge and lvextend commands has -s option?

I forgot when read that vgchange, lvmerge and  lvextend commands with -s option can disable the VG or LV sync.

 

I want to know which patch contain this enhancement.

 

Thanks!

Hi Jack:

 

man vgchange

man lvmerge

man lvextend

 

look for "-s" option.

 

rgs,

It would help to know which version of HP-UX you are using.  My 11.11 systems show a -s option for each of those commands.

Hi Pete,

My system is 11.23.

could you please show me the description of -s option of lvextend command?

OK.  When you can,  just post the output of

 

uname -a

 

that would help.

 

 

Disregard - no need.  I posted this before I saw your 11.23 version.

I don't seem to be able to get to HP's online man pages for 11iV2 so all I can give you is the 11.11 description:

 

-s

 

Do not synchronize the new mirror copies.  This may affect data high availability and you should use lvsync or vgsync to synchronize the mirrors.

 

The -m option must be specified along with this option.

Why wait (assuming you or anybody can find the online documetation that you want?).

 

That said:

...and then:

...to find all the flavors of the 11i manpages :-)

Thanks, Jim - you made me look again and I finally found the man pages.

Hey, Pete!

 

Always happy to help!  Finding documentation after the documentation mutation event is a Hanzel-and-Gretel affair with very few pebbles  ;-)

 

[ And no, I dislike having to bookmark what at that moment might be the most recent manual, but in a day or so, might not ]

 

Regards!
