Is the lun already under VxVM control?

Please show us output of 'vxdisk list' and highlight the lun that you need to add.

put disk under VxVM control:

vxdisksetup -i <device name>

create a DG with the LUNs:

vxdg init <dg name> <LUN 1> <LUN2> ...

create volume in the DG:

vxassist -g <dg name> make <volume name> <size> [layout ...]

create VxFS on the volume:

mkfs -F vxfs /dev/vx/dgname/volname

Putting the filesystem into VCS control needs you understand how to configure VCS by hagui or command. Please reference VCS Admin Guide.
