Hot-relocation guidelines

Hot-relocation automatically restores redundancy and access to mirrored and RAID-5 volumes when a disk fails. This is done by relocating the affected subdisks to disks designated as spares and/or free space in the same disk group.

The hot-relocation feature is enabled by default. The associated daemon, vxrelocd, is automatically started during system startup.

Refer to the following guidelines when using hot-relocation.

See "How hot-relocation works" on page 358.
