Re: how to mirror vg00

The steps to mirror your boot volume are (PA-RISC):

1. Create a physical volume with a boot reserved area
"pvcreate -B /dev/rdsk/c1t6d0"

2. Add the physical volume to the root VG
"vgextend /dev/vg00 /dev/dsk/c1t6d0"

3. Use mkboot to place the boot utilities in the boot area and add the AUTO file
"mkboot /dev/rdsk/c1t6d0"
"mkboot -a "hpux -lq" /dev/rdsk/c1t6d0"

4. Use mkboot to update the AUTO file on the primary boot disk
"mkboot -a "hpux -lq" /dev/rdsk/c0t6d0"

5. Use lvlnboot to identify the root, boot, primary swap and dump lvols
"lvlnboot -r /dev/vg00/lvol3 /dev/vg00" (lvol4 if you have secondary swap in lv
ol3)
"lvlnboot -b /dev/vg00/lvol1"
"lvlnboot -s /dev/vg00/lvol2 /dev/vg00"
"lvlnboot -d /dev/vg00/lvol2 /dev/vg00"
"lvlnboot -v"

6. Mirror the stand, root and swap logical volumes in order
"lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol1 /dev/dsk/c1t6d0"
"lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol2 /dev/dsk/c1t6d0"
"lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol3 /dev/dsk/c1t6d0"

7. Then mirror the rest of your root logical volumes
"lvextend -m 1 /dev/vg00/lvol4 /dev/dsk/c1t6d0"
etc.

8. Modify your alternate boot path
"setboot -a 8/8.6.0 # use the path of your new boot disk"

9. Edit /stand/bootconf and add your new mirrored boot disk.

That's all there is to it.


For Itanium architecture, follow this guide:

Re: how to mirror vg00

Hi:

Setting up vg00 LVM mirroring differs on PA-RISC and on Itanium servers slightly. See appendix-D here:

Regards!

Hi (again):

> reboot is required or not

No reboot is required to allocate or to deallocate LVM mirroring.
