About subdisks

Subdisks are the low-level building blocks in a Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) configuration that are required to create plexes and volumes.

Subdisks are created automatically if you use the vxassist command or the Veritas Enterprise Administrator (VEA) to create volumes.

See "Creating a volume" on page 248.

  Note   Most VxVM commands require superuser or equivalent privileges.
