VXVM 6.1 – How to display Default VxVM Configuration values

vxvm-how-toVxVM uses several Default Values during volume management tasks.
To display all defaults:
# vxdefault list
KEYWORD                         CURRENT-VALUE   DEFAULT-VALUE  
autoreminor                     on              on
autostartvolumes                on              on
fssmartmovethreshold            100             100           
reclaim_on_delete_start_time    20:00           22:10       
reclaim_on_delete_wait_period   2               1             
sharedminorstart                33000           33000
usefssmartmove                  none            all
To set the default reclaim_on_delete_start_time to 8 p.m.:
# vxdefault set reclaim_on_delete_start_time 20:00
Note:  /etc/default/vxsf  –   Persistent file used to store the defaults.


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. And the result is today's' unixadminschool.com. You can connect me at - https://www.linkedin.com/in/unixadminschool/
