Copying plexes

This task copies the contents of a volume onto a specified plex. The volume to be copied must not be enabled. The plex cannot be associated with any other volume. To copy a plex, use the following command:

# vxplex [-g diskgroup] cp volume new_plex

After the copy task is complete, new_plex is not associated with the specified volume volume. The plex contains a complete copy of the volume data. The plex that is being copied should be the same size or larger than the volume. If the plex being copied is larger than the volume, an incomplete copy of the data results. For the same reason, new_plex should not be sparse.
