Improve volume layouts

Start VxVM and use tools such as vxassist or the VxVM user interface to relayout volumes online. New layouts may require additional disk space.

You may wish to create logs for converted RAID-5 volumes. RAID-5 logging from the Solaris Volume Manager configuration is not suitable for conversion to use by VxVM. Logs are not necessary for normal operations, but are useful for recovery. Use the following command to create a log for a RAID-5 volume:

# vxassist [-g diskgroup] addlog volume
