VxVM Troubleshooting – Increasing the Size of Veritas Disk Private Region


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/

    Hi Ram,

    I have a doubt here ..
    Lets think we have disk and its private region got full . In that case what error we will get if private region got full and what would be impact ?
    how we can check and confirm for particular disk and diskgroup private region got full ?

  5. Ramdev says:

    Pavan, the below command mentioned in this doc to show how much pemlen and free values for the private region.  

    root@gurkulvcs2#vxdg list testdg|grep ^config

    and about the error message you will get something like  ( but not exactlu same)

    “Configuration too large for configuration copies”

    Hi Ramdev 

    What is meant by tutilo and putilo fields in veritas volume manager

    • Ramdev says:

      Hi Srinivas, I know they are reserved for VxvM internal purpose but never played with them. And as per the Veritas manual.

      the putil and tutil fields are used by Volume Manager commands after plex creation. putil attributes are maintained on reboot; tutil fields are temporary and are not retained on reboot.
      Both putil and tutil have three functions and are numbered according to those functions. These fields can be modified as needed.
      Volume Manager uses the utility fields marked putil0 and tutil0. Other VERITAS products use those marked putil1 and tutil1. Fields marked putil2 and tutil2 are user fields. Table 1 lists the functions of the putil and tutil fields.
