Platform: Solaris 9 (SPARC)
Release: Generic

Use the vxcdsconvert(1m) command. vxcdsconvert(1m) tries to make the disk group portable, for example by moving subdisks to a different location so that they conform to the Cross-platform Data Sharing (CDS) alignment restriction.

# vxcdsconvert -g diskgroup_name alignment

For more information, see the vxcdsconvert(1m) man page.
