The VxVM configuration daemon (
vxconfigd) provides the interface between VxVM commands and the kernel device drivers.
vxconfigd handles configuration change requests from VxVM utilities, communicates the change requests to the VxVM kernel, and modifies configuration information stored on disk.
vxconfigd also initializes VxVM when the system is booted.
vxdctl command is the command-line interface to the

In VxVM 4.0 and later releases, disk access records are no longer stored in the
/etc/vx/volboot file. Non-persistent disk access records are created by scanning the disks at system startup. Persistent disk access records for
nopriv disks are permanently stored in the
/etc/vx/darecs file in the
root file system. The
vxconfigd daemon reads the contents of this file to locate the disks and the configuration databases for their disk groups.
/etc/vx/darecs file is also used to store definitions of foreign devices that are not autoconfigurable. Such entries may be added by using the
vxddladm(1M) manual page.
If your system is configured to use Dynamic Multipathing (DMP), you can also use
vxdctl(1M) manual page.
