Do I need VEA to use VCS?

Created: 02 Oct 2012 • Updated: 02 Oct 2012 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

My current setup has my diskgroups and volumes originally setup in VEA then when I build my SG in VCS I point to the VEA diskgroup and volume.

Is there a way to create the diskgroups and volumes without useing VEA?

You use VEA to create diskgroups and volumes and VCS Java GUI to create service groups - VEA cannot create VCS objects (like service groups) and VCS Java Gui cannot create Volume Manager objects (like diskgroups and volumes).

VOM can be used to create both - this is a free centralised GUI which you can manage VCS and Volume Manager on multiple systems, but you need to install VOM on a server and access it via a browser on your client.

You can create VCS and Volume Manager objects using the command line - mainly vxassist for volume manager and hagrp and hares for VCS.
