To disable a disk group, unmount and stop any volumes in the disk group, and then use the following command to deport it:
vxdg deport diskgroup
Deporting a disk group does not actually remove the disk group. It disables use of the disk group by the system. Disks in a deported disk group can be reused, reinitialized, added to other disk groups, or imported for use on other systems. Use the
import command to re-enable access to the disk group.
