Where are diskgroups stored in vxvm


I've been using dd and drd to clone disks in a SAN boot environment. There are times when the disk I'm cloning contains an image that was previously used with VXVM disk groups. So those disk group configs are also cloned. When the cloned disk is booted up and the server's HBAs happened to be zoned , it will bring up the vxvm disk group, something undesirable as it might be used elsewhere.

Where are disk group configs stored so I can mount the disk after cloning and modify so no disk groups are used? I appreciate any idea.

Thanks a lot.
