Displaying disk group information

To display information on existing disk groups, enter the following command:

# vxdg list


rootdg  enabled   730344554.1025.tweety

newdg   enabled   731118794.1213.tweety

To display more detailed information on a specific disk group, use the following command:

# vxdg list diskgroup

The output from this command is similar to the following:

Group: mydg

dgid: 962910960.1025.bass

import-id: 0.1


version: 140

local-activation: read-write

alignment : 512 (bytes)

ssb: on

detach-policy: local

copies: nconfig=default nlog=default

config: seqno=0.1183 permlen=3448 free=3428 templen=12 loglen=522

config disk hdisk9 copy 1 len=3448 state=clean online

config disk hdisk17 copy 1 len=3448 state=clean online

log disk hdisk9 copy 1 len=522

log disk hdisk17 copy 1 len=522

In this example, the administrator has chosen to name the boot disk group as rootdg.

To verify the disk group ID and name associated with a specific disk (for example, to import the disk group), use the following command:

# vxdisk -s list devicename

This command provides output that includes the following information for the specified disk. For example, output for disk hdisk21 as follows:

Disk:   hdisk21

type: simple

flags: online ready private autoconfig autoimport imported

diskid: 963504891.1070.bass

dgname: newdg

dgid: 963504895.1075.bass
