Perform the conversion

The first task in this category starts the conversion from Solaris Volume Manager software to VxVM. You have no easy way to return to a Solaris Volume Manager configuration once the conversion starts.

Run the doconvert utility to make the conversion. Doconvert relies on information from the preconvert utility.

Reboot the system. The reboot activates system configuration changes.

Change volume references in applications that use the volumes. VxVM uses volume names that are different than the names used by Solaris Volume Manager software. Every application that uses the Solaris Volume Manager volumes must be updated to use the new names.

See "Converting from the Solaris Volume Manager software to VxVM" on page 544.
