You can use the
relayout command to reconfigure the layout of a volume without taking it offline. The general form of this command is:
vxassist [-b] [-g
If specified, the
-b option makes relayout of the volume a background task.
The following destination layout configurations are supported.
See "Permitted relayout transformations" on page 279.
For example, the following command changes a concatenated volume,
vol02, in disk group,
mydg, to a striped volume with the default number of columns, 2, and default stripe unit size, 64 kilobytes:
vxassist -g mydg relayout vol02 layout=stripe
On occasions, it may be necessary to perform a relayout on a plex rather than on a volume.
See "Specifying a plex for relayout" on page 283.
