PVLINK and SECURE PATH 3.0F

Hi,
I need to install secure path 3.0F in hp-ux environment but i have some question...
I have one system hp-ux 11i, san switches and xp128. The system volume group are configured
with PVLINK. What happen to my disk device file after system configure secure path? Need to reduce alternate link from vg before install secure path? Thk

Your VG should be extended with all the availale paths to LUN .

As far as I know Volume Group needs to be created again with the secure Path devices (i.e VG needs to be recreated after installing the Secure path).

Note: Many a times disk device names changes after installing secure path.

Regards,
Amit

Re: PVLINK and SECURE PATH 3.0F

The spvgactivate script (/sbin/init.d/spvgactivate) activates
the LVM volume groups during boot time. This is required because the LVM
volume groups created with Secure Path devices are not activated as part of
the boot-up-time LVM configuration since the persistence module of Secure
Path is not loaded at that time.
