To move a disk between disk groups, remove the disk from one disk group and add it to the other. For example, to move the physical disk
sdc (attached with the disk name
salesdg04) from disk group
salesdg and add it to disk group
mktdg, use the following commands:
vxdg -g salesdg rmdisk salesdg04
vxdg -g mktdg adddisk mktdg02=sdc
You can also move a disk by using the
vxdiskadm command. Select item
3 (Remove a disk) from the main menu, and then select item
1 (Add or initialize a disk).
The preferred method of moving disks between disk groups preserves VxVM objects, such as volumes, that are configured on the disks.
See "Moving objects between disk groups" on page 213.
