VXVM 6.1 – How to Convert VxVM disks and Diskgroup to CDS compatible?

vxvm-how-toCheck if the disk group, mydg, and all its disks can be made portable:
# vxcdsconvert -g mydg -A group
Make the disk group, mydg, and all its disks portable while its volumes are still online:
# vxcdsconvert -g mydg -o novolstop group
Make the disk group, anodg, and all its disks portable while its volumes are still online, and allow subdisks to be evacuated to disks anodg11 through anodg14 if required:
# vxcdsconvert -g anodg -o novolstop group \ move_subdisks_ok=yes evac_subdisks_ok=yes \ evac_disk_list=anodg11,anodg12,anodg13,anodg14
You can avoid using the -o novolstop option during disk conversion if you first stop all applications that are using volumes on the disks that are to be converted. In the following example, this has already been done for all the volumes in the disk group mydg.
 # vxcdsconvert -g mydg alldisks
After disk conversion has completed, restart the applications, and enter this command:
# vxcdsconvert -g mydg group

I have started unixadminschool.com ( aka gurkulindia.com) in 2009 as my own personal reference blog, and later sometime i have realized that my leanings might be helpful for other unixadmins if I manage my knowledge-base in more user friendly format.
