drd changing a cloned disk to become an original disk

Hi all,

Have a question here please. Running on HPUX B.11.31, I have just used drd to clone a HPVM client. It was successful and now I can boot from either the primary disk or the clone disk. So far so good.

Now I want to permanently make the clone disk the primary disk, then drop the old (original) disk.

Is it possible to do this? It seems that the OS always considers the cloned disk as such. drd doesn't seem to have an option to change the cloned disk to become the primary disk.

Output from drd status below. I want to permanently drop disk2, and make disk15 the only boot disk from now on.

/> # drd status
