Can a VERITAS Cluster Volume Manager shared disk group be imported as a regular private disk group ?

Solution



A VERITAS Cluster Volume Manager (CVM) shared disk group can be imported as a regular private disk group when the "-s" flag is omitted from the import command.

Here the disk group, datadg, is a shared disk group:

sptsuncfs2 # vxdisk list
DEVICE TYPE DISK GROUP STATUS
c0t0d0s2 sliced rootdisk rootdg online
c1t15d0s2 sliced disk1 datadg online shared

First deport the shared disk group from the CVM Master node

sptsuncfs2 # vxdctl -c mode
mode: enabled: cluster active - MASTER
sptsuncfs2 # vxdg deport datadg
sptsuncfs2 # vxdisk list
DEVICE TYPE DISK GROUP STATUS
c0t0d0s2 sliced rootdisk rootdg online
c1t15d0s2 sliced - - online

Now import the disk group using the regular import command ( no "-s" option")

sptsuncfs2 # vxdg import datadg
sptsuncfs2 # vxdisk list
DEVICE TYPE DISK GROUP STATUS
c0t0d0s2 sliced rootdisk rootdg online
c1t15d0s2 sliced disk1 datadg online

Note: The importing of regular private disk groups can take place on either MASTER or SLAVE nodes (but not both) in a CVM configuration.

Alternatively, private disk groups can also be imported as shared disk groups on the CVM MASTER node with the addition of the "-s" option to the import command.
