Creating a volume set

To create a volume set for use by Veritas File System (VxFS), use the following command:

# vxvset [-g diskgroup] -t vxfs make volset volume

Here volset is the name of the volume set, and volume is the name of the first volume in the volume set. The -t option defines the content handler subdirectory for the application that is to be used with the volume. This subdirectory contains utilities that an application uses to operate on the volume set. As the operation of these utilities is determined by the requirements of the application and not by VxVM, it is not discussed further here.

For example, to create a volume set named myvset that contains the volume vol1, in the disk group mydg, you would use the following command:

# vxvset -g mydg -t vxfs make myvset vol1
