The VVR types used to be in a separate file, but in 5.1 they should be provided in the main "" file, so you should find that /etc/VRTSvcs/conf/config/ contains RVG and RVGPrimary types (and others VVR types for snapshots and VVR with CVM).

If your file does not contains these, then you may have upgraded from a previous VCS version and not upgraded your file - this being the case, the RVG types should be in the file in the parent directory - /etc/VRTSvcs/conf.  If you need to know how to merge these 2, let me know.
