VxVM and Dump

Hi,

On 11.23 and I would like to change the usage of the rootdg swapvol to be only used for swap as opposed to swap and dump. I have some other dedicated dump volumes now.

I can only find information about adding dump (vxvmboot) volumes for VxVM, but nothing in regard to removing them.

Anyone any ideas how to change this to be a swap volume only?

Thanks.

Hi,

Have a look at this doc.

Hi Robert-Jan,

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

I don't think you read my question properly though - I want to REMOVE the usage of a rootdg swap/dump volume from the dump configuration in a manner that is persistent across reboots.

I've already seen the document you reference, and like much of the info I found it only mentions adding swap and dump volumes to a configuration.

Any info anyone has or can suggest on my issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

use lvrmboot -d option to remove the dump volume.
