Splitting shared disk groups

You can use the vxdg split command to remove a self-contained set of VxVM objects from an imported disk group, and move them to a newly created disk group.

See "Splitting disk groups" on page 214.

Splitting a private disk group creates a private disk group, and splitting a shared disk group creates a shared disk group. You can split a private disk group on any cluster node where that disk group is imported. You can only split a shared disk group or create a shared target disk group on the master node.

See "Moving objects between disk groups" on page 213.
