PVLINKS

Quick and easy question - is PVlinks part of a default HPUX 11.x install? I am just trying to determine if it's something that needs to be downloaded or if it's an inseparable part of the OS...

Re: PVLINKS

Hi Dave:

There's nothing to install. Pvlinks are intrinsic to LVM.

You add alternate lines (pvlinks) with 'vgextend'. You demote primary pvlinks to secondary ones with 'vgreduce' followed by 'vgextend'. LVM allows a maximum of eight (8) pvlinks to a device.

Regards!

Re: PVLINKS

HI (again) Dave:

I should add that on 11.31 LVM alternate links are deprecated:

WOOOO, a straight answer, do you know how rare that is? Basic questions like these are almost impossible to get an answer to....

Thanks much
