Plan and prepare for the conversion

The tasks in this category can be done well before starting the actual conversion.

Plan the process and collect data for the conversion. The conversion may require changes to some Solaris Volume Manager metadevices.

See "Check metadevices" on page 539.

See "Planning the conversion" on page 537.
See "Preparing a Solaris Volume Manager configuration for conversion" on page 540.

Install the basic Veritas Volume Manager (without creating disk groups or objects and without initializing disks). The conversion utilities complete the VxVM setup with objects converted from Solaris Volume Manager software.
