Reloading OS due to patch issues


Hi Everyone,
I have an RX5670 and am planing a cold install of OS(HPUX11iv2), partly due to Bunlde 11iv2 patch issues (see thread http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=718917&admit=716493758+1098118667175+28353475)and to the "/" root partion at 98%.

I have a backup tape made, as well as copying non-OS data to another depot. I have reviewed my system requirements per document 5990-8144.

The current disk is configured with LVM and I would like to possibly change this to VxVM when I re-install. Does anyone have any issues/problems or advice setup with VxVm? I have never used it and would like advice with using it.

I also have an additional disk that I am want to add at this time, are there any unique disk commands or setup process that I need to run on it before use, as I would with LVM?

Thanks for all your help.

Re: Reloading OS due to patch issues

I personally favor LVM.

VxVM does include rootvg mirror without extra cost and that can be a motivating factor. It is a little more flexible with regards to striping scenarios.

LVM is an old standby. Very reliable, and I like it fine.

You can go either way, just make sure you have good doc on how to do what you now do with lvm in vxvm.

Another note, though the hp world may be moving toward vxvm, right now, the overwhelming majority of this community uses LVM. That may change, but right now you have more potential itrc helpers with and LVM setup.
