Re: Mirroring In HP-UX

Say /dev/dsk/c0t6d0 is the root disk and /dev/dsk/c3t6d0 is the disk you want to make a mirror of.

1. Create a bootable LVM disk to be used for the mirror.
pvcreate -B /dev/rdsk/c3t6d0
2. Add this disk to the current root volume group.
vgextend /dev/vg00 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
3. Make the new disk a boot disk.
mkboot -l /dev/rdsk/c3t6d0
4. Copy the correct AUTO file into the new LIF area.
mkboot -a "hpux -lq (;0)/vmunix" /dev/rdsk/c3t6d0
5. Mirror the boot, root and primary swap logical volumes to the new
bootable disk. Ensure that all devices in vg00, such as /usr, /swap,
etc., are mirrored.
The following is an example of mirroring the boot logical volume:
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol1 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
The following is an example of mirroring the primary swap logical
volume:
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol2 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
The following is an example of mirroring the root logical volume:
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol3 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
6. Update the boot information contained in the BDRA for the mirror
copies of boot, primary swap and root.
/usr/sbin/lvlnboot -b /dev/vg00/lvol1
/usr/sbin/lvlnboot -s /dev/vg00/lvol2
/usr/sbin/lvlnboot -r /dev/vg00/lvol3
7. Check if the BDRA is correct.
/usr/sbin/lvlnboot -R /dev/vg00
8. Verify that the mirrors were properly created.
lvlnboot -v /dev/vg00
The output of this command is shown in a display like the following:
Boot Definitions for Volume Group /dev/vg00:
Boot Definitions for Volume Group /dev/vg00:
Physical Volumes belonging in Root Volume Group:
/dev/dsk/c0t6d0 (1/0/0/3/0.6.0) -- Boot Disk
/dev/dsk/c3t6d0 (1/0/1/0/0/1/1.6.0) -- Boot Disk
Boot: lvol1 on: /dev/dsk/c0t6d0
/dev/dsk/c3t6d0
Root: lvol3 on: /dev/dsk/c0t6d0
/dev/dsk/c3t6d0
Swap: lvol2 on: /dev/dsk/c0t6d0
/dev/dsk/c3t6d0
Dump: lvol2 on: /dev/dsk/c0t6d0, 0

vgdisplay -v vg00

Then lvextend for all other lvols:

lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol4 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol5 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol6 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol7 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol8 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol9 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol10 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0
lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol11 /dev/dsk/c3t6d0

Hi
LVM Mirroring allows you to make the copies of LogicalVolumess and not VGs/PVs

lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg01/lvol2 /dev/dsk/c1t2d0
The above command make one copy of the LV /dev/vg01/lvol2 to the PV /dev/dsk/c1t2d0.
