Release: Generic

For a disk group to be compatible with the Cross-platform Data Sharing feature, the alignment value must be set to 8k (16 sectors). To set the alignment value, use either the vxdg(1m) or vxcdsconvert(1m) commands:


# vxdg -g diskgroup set align=8k




# vxcdsconvert -g diskgroup alignment


For more information, see the vxdg(1m) or vxcdsconvert(1m) man pages.
