Re: I want to export a disk from a server to other server.

experts,

let me more clear on this issue.

Both the server are on different location. And disk is already taken out from the VG of the remote server and disk available with me.

Now i want this disk to be add with all data available inside the server.one more worst information is this,i dont have map available with me for the VG from which disk was taken out to remote server.

Is this possible?

If yes please help.

Re: I want to export a disk from a server to other server.

Yes,/No -> you can call it mounting a foreign disk. But you can give try

# mkdir /somedir

# mknode /somedir/node

# vgimport /somedir /dev/dsk/disk

# vgchange -a y /somedir

then use SAM to mount the logical volume.

In my case SAM reported a corrupt disk error, so I also ran:

# fsck -F vxfs -o full -y /somedir/rlvol#

Then went back to SAM and it mounted fine. Recovered data, felt lucky, had a good day! .. :)

HTH,

Johnson
