Need to add vg's to a BC setup

I have a production database server with exsisting BC's setup on the development database server, where the backups actually run. I have to add another 4 newly created vg's to the BC backups. Can someone point me to a procedure for creating the new BC vg's.

Re: Need to add vg's to a BC setup

Is BC a business copy? This is usually done from the array management tools. Once this is done, assign the copies to the dev server and import them.

Hope this helps!

Create snapshot
mkdir /dev/nn
mknod /dev/nn/group...
vgchgid /dev/rdsk/c... /dev/rdsk/c...
vgimport /dev/rdsk/c... /dev/rdsk/c...
vgchange -a y /dev/nn
vgcfgbackup /dev/nn
fsck -F vxfs /dev/nn/lvoln
mount /dev/nn/lvoln /mount/fs

Re: Need to add vg's to a BC setup

Before snapshot, unmount your BCV volume group(s), you need to do something like:

# vgchange -a n /dev/vg..
# vgexport /dev/vg...
