Re: steps for removing a pv

Hi..

How many disks are present in this VG (single/multiple)? (use vgdisplay)
Is the disk you are going to remove, mirrored? (use lvdisplay)
How many LVs are present on this disk? (use pvdisplay)
Do you want to remove the disk only or the entire VG?

You can share:
# vgdisplay -v vg_name
# pvdisplay /dev/dsk/c#t#d#

Don't fix that what ain't broke

Re: steps for removing a pv

I'd like to add one thing to what R.K and Vishnu stated above. Also make sure that your pv is not part of a stripped lvol.
vgdisplay -v vg_name
lvdisplay -v /dev/vg_name/lvol_name | more
pvdisplay -v pv_name | more
