How to take a backup of vg configuration in Hpunix

Hi,
We have a storage activity to migrate few luns in HP-UX. We are planning to keep a backup of the configuration files.
How to take backup of the volume group configuration, lvm configuration, etc.


Which are the other important files that needs to be backed up.

Thanks!!

Regards,
Sanwin

Re: How to take a backup of vg configuration in Hpunix

Hi:

# vgcfgbackup /dev/vgNN

...see the friendly manpages for more information.

You can also create mapfiles for use with 'vgimport's:

# vgexport -m /tmp/vgNN.map -p -s -v /dev/VGNN

...once again, more information can be found in the manpages.

Regards!

Shalom,

vgcfgbackup

volume group configuration backup.

This is run automatically during certain operations but after you make changes you should run it yourself.

Hi,

We can use vgcfgbackup command.

Also keep a copy of important config files like /etc/lvmtab, fstab, lvmrc etc...

Hi,
If you need to take the backup to an alternate path use the -f option.
#vgcfgbackup -f /tmp/vgXX.backup vgXX

As Ignited mentioned you can also take the backup of other configuration files.

Hi,
Ypu can use the -p along with the -m option.

#vgexport -s -p -m /tmp/vgXX.map /dev/vgXX
