Creating plexes

Use the vxmake command to create VxVM objects, such as plexes. When creating a plex, identify the subdisks that are to be associated with it:

To create a plex from existing subdisks, use the following command:

# vxmake [-g diskgroup] plex plex sd=subdisk1[,subdisk2,...]

For example, to create a concatenated plex named vol01-02 from two existing subdisks named mydg02-01 and mydg02-02 in the disk group, mydg, use the following command:

# vxmake -g mydg plex vol01-02 sd=mydg02-01,mydg02-02
