Re: HP-UX swap type

With HP-UX 11.31 I believe there is a 'swapoff' command that will allow you turn a swap device off. That would then allow you to reuse the LV as something else.

Barring that, you have to disable the swap device in /etc/fstab and reboot the system. Then you can use the LV for something else.

There is no swapoff command in HP-UX 11.11. There must at least one swap area in HP-UX, typically /dev/vg00/lvol2. That volume cannot be remove or reduced in size except by reinstalling HP-UX using Ignite. For other swap devices or filesystem swap, they cannot be changed or removed without a reboot.
