Conversion from AIX

Created: 28 Jul 2009 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 1 comment

Could anyone tell me about how much time it would take to convert an AIX system to run Storage Foundation. I'm trying to build a business case but need to figure out the deployment time for VxFS and VxVM, and Storage Foundation. I assume it would require at least one reboot of the AIX server plus a couple of hours to convert from the AIX LVM?

The time required depends on factors such as the number of files in the LVM volume group.

The estimated time is explained in the The AIX Volume Convert Utility Reference at

Let us know if that document does not address your question or you would like to see other details in the document.
