LSM howto replace boot disks with bigger ones

What is the best way to replace the mirrored bootdisks with bigger ones under Tru64 V5.1b?

Re: LSM howto replace boot disks with bigger ones

I belive you can use volplex(8) command to detach and/or replace old plex with the new plex.

see volplex(8) manpage for more details.

Example:

Attaches the plex newplex to the volume that oldplex is associated with and dissociates oldplex.

/sbin/volplex [-Vf] [-g diskgroup] [-U usetype] [-o useopt] [-v volume] mv oldplex newplex

Hope this helps.

thx anandganjihal

Eventually did an unencapsulation of the boot disk, where volplex -o rm dis plex-nn was one of the first steps.
