This issue has been solved. See solution.


(Existing environment)


OS = rhel 5.3


(Future Environment)

SFHA/DR = 6.0.2

OS = rhel 5.9


SFHA/DR = 6.0.2

OS = 6.0.2

Suppose I import the DIskgroup from Existing Environment to any Future Environment, can I able to import the same DiskGroup again in the Existing Environment ?

No - diskgroup is never upgraded automatically - this is a manual step using:

vxdg [-T versionupgrade diskgroup

If you don't specify version when using this command then diskgroup is upgraded to the latest version.

So if you don't manually upgrade then you can re-import on original earlier version of SF after importing on later version of SF.  Obviously, if you upgrade to a DG version on SF 6.0 which is higher than the highest DG version on SF 5.0, then you won't able to then import on 5.0
