Changing the default disk format
When disks are put under VxVM control, they are formatted with the default cdsdisk layout. This happens during the following operations:
Initialization of disks
Encapsulation of disks with existing partitions or slices (Linux and Solaris systems)
Conversion of LVM disks (AIX, HP-UX and Linux systems)
You can override this behavior by changing the settings in the system defaults files. For example, you can change the default format to sliced for disk initialization by modifying the definition of the format attribute in the /etc/default/vxdisk defaults file.
