Disk devices are named as follows:
OTHER_DISKScategory (disks that are not multipathed by DMP) have names of the form
hdisk#, which are the same as the device names generated by AIX.
XYZ_1and so on. The device names are automatically renamed if the name of the enclosure is changed.
To display the native AIX device name of a VM disk (such as
mydg01), use the following command:
vxdisk list diskname
