Veritas: differentiating between clustering and volume management

Not familiar with Veritas.

I need some help differentiating between Linux nodes that implement Veritas FS operations ( Veritas Volume Management ) vs those that also use or only use Veritas clustering ( Veritas Cluster suite ).

Simply:

As root on the command line I'd like to be able to tell if I'm on a box that is:

1) using the Veritas Volume Management

and or

2) using the Veritas Cluster Suite functionality

Re: Veritas: differentiating between clustering and volume management

Hi,

Every system that is part of a veritas cluster server, vcs, will also be using veritas volume management (and veritas filesystem).

To check if a system is part of veritas cluster server use the command.

# hastatus -sum

(that above command is "vcs's" "hp-ux mcsg cmviewcl equivalent", dont know what the command equivalent is for redhat's cluster)

To check if a system has veritas volumemanager installed, issue.

# vxdisk -o alldgs list

To check what sort of veritas (volumemanagement/cluster server) licensing is installed.

# vxdctl license

Greetz,
Chris
