veritas volume manager.

i want to know that while going for a setup of veritas volume manager, the Operating system is installed on LVM or on any simply on any disk.
after the installation of the HP-Ux 11i, we have to install the software for veritas volume manager and then we are able to intialize the rest of the disk for the VXVM.

is it correct or anything is to be added?

Shalom,

No, not correct.

HP-UX permits a disk to be in one volume group. You can't carve it up like you can in Linux and allocate part of a disk for LVM and part for vxvm

So if the OS is already installed LVM style, you will need some other disk to do any vxVM work.

Maybe you can build the system with vxvm as the default and then you can learn the product and do additional configuration later.

If you have more than one disk available, your statement is probably correct.

Re: veritas volume manager.

Yes it's correct since u r initialising the rest of the disks mean the disks which are not used by LVM...

after the installation of the HP-Ux 11i, we have to install the software for veritas volume manager and then we are able to intialize the rest of the disk for the VXVM.

You can also install the OS on VXVM...
