adding disks in veritas (hp-ux)


I have a 2 node McServiceGuard cluster running hp-ux 11.31, in which one of the nodes id down. I need to create another file system into the system, and I am not familiar with veritas, but I did some research, and I found the following steps needed, please correct me if I am wrong:

1. vxdctl -f enable

2. vxdiskadm to add disk into current disk group

3. vxdg list

4. vxdisk list

5. vxassist -g dgrac make  data14 100g

6. ls /dev/vx/dsk/dgrac

7. mkdir data14

8. newfs -F vxfs -o largefiles /dev/vx/dsk/data14/rlvol


9 . mount -F vxfs /dev/vx/dsk/dgrac/data14 /data14

10. bdf

Do I need to bring down the database before these exercise?

Looking forward to hear from you.
