About volume sets

Veritas Volume Manager exports a feature called volume sets. Unlike the traditional Volume Manager volume, which can be used for raw I/O access or to contain a file system, a volume set is a container for multiple different volumes. Each volume can have its own geometry.

The Volume Manager vxvset command is used to create and manage volume sets. Volume sets cannot be empty. When the last entry is removed, the volume set itself is removed.
