>>>i need see the disk not used instaled in the server.<<<

with the help of "vgdisplay" & strings /etc/lvmtab you can find them

vgdisplay -v |more
strings /etc/lvmtab

That is fine **IF** all disks are LVM.

What about VxVM disks? What about RAW disks not configured in a volume manager?

This is where you absolutely MUST have good documentation.

Hi Eli:

> command for disk free, no installed in the Volume Group.

And do you consider a physical disk "free" if it doesn't belong to a volume group but could be 'vgimport'ed because it is a valid LVM volume?

Documentation is the only absolute key to knowing what's free and what's used.

If you are not in 11.31, you can use sam to find it out easily. You can go to vg creation it will give you a list of all the disks not used yet.

While good documentation is a great thing to have, it's no substitute for understanding what you're doing.
