Changing the alignment of a non-CDS disk group

The alignment value can only be changed for disk groups with version 110 or greater.

For a CDS disk group, alignment can only take a value of 8k. Attempts to set the alignment of a CDS disk group to 1 fail unless you first change it to a non-CDS disk group.

Increasing the alignment may require vxcdsconvert to be run to change the layout of the objects in the disk group.

To display the current alignment value of a disk group, use the vxprint command.
