clarification on Mirror

HI Admins

Do we really need MirrorDisk package to mirror boot disk.Please clarify.

I see a server which is has mirrored boot disk but didnot have the MirrorDisk package

Boot Definitions for Volume Group /dev/vg00:
Physical Volumes belonging in Root Volume Group:
/dev/dsk/c1t6d0 (0/0/2/0.6.0) -- Boot Disk
/dev/dsk/c2t6d0 (0/0/2/1.6.0) -- Boot Disk



[root]v:/opt> swlist -l product |grep MirrorDisk
[root]v:/opt>

Re: clarification on Mirror

Shalom,

swlist -l product |grep -i mirror

Your original statement does not get you a listing on mirror/ux

Clearly from the output mirror/ux is installed.

Take a look at this post to see how mirroring is done. It has several good check commands.

Re: clarification on Mirror

Hi,

the correct way to check if the Mirror is installed

swlist -l fileset |grep -i mirror

It's now a fileset of LVM, so you could not see it by swlist -l product.

HTH.

Best regards,
Fabio

Re: clarification on Mirror

Output of swlist

swlist -l fileset | grep -i mirror
LVM.LVM-MIRROR-RUN B.11.11 LVM-MIRROR-RUN
PHCO_34196.LVM-MIRROR-RUN 1.0 LVM.LVM-MIRROR-RUN

Is this the package for mirroring.The os in the server is B.11.11

look for mirror copies = 1

its mirrored.

or swlist

Re: clarification on Mirror

Hi,

1)Do we really need MirrorDisk package to mirror boot disk.Please clarify.??
==>Yes you required Mirror Unix to mirror.
To check use below command,
#swlist -l bundle|grep -i mirror
or
#swlist -l fileset | grep -i mirror

2)swlist -l fileset | grep -i mirror
LVM.LVM-MIRROR-RUN B.11.11 LVM-MIRROR-RUN
PHCO_34196.LVM-MIRROR-RUN 1.0 LVM.LVM-MIRROR-RUN

Is this the package for mirroring.The os in the server is B.11.11??
==>Yes, it is enabled on your system, you can perform mirroring.
