You must install Veritas Volume Manager before running the conversion utilities. Obtain the VxVM software and a full VxVM license key.
During the VxVM installation, do not run
vxinstall. If required, you can use the
vxlicinst command to install any license keys.
After installation, do not initialize any disks, and do not create any disk groups or VxVM objects.
The conversion process completes the VxVM installation and configuration.
