You can use the
vxunroot utility to remove rootability support from a system. This makes
home and other file systems on the root disk directly accessible through disk partitions, instead of through volume devices.
vxunroot utility also makes the necessary configuration changes to allow the system to boot without any dependency on VxVM.
Only the volumes that were present on the root disk when it was encapsulated can be unencapsulated using
vxunroot. Before running
vxunroot, evacuate all other volumes that were created on the root disk after it was encapsulated.
Do not remove the plexes on the root disk that correspond to the original disk partitions.
To remove rootability from a system
vxplexcommand to remove all the plexes of the volumes
homeon the disks other than the root disk. For example, the following command removes the plexes
home-02that are configured on the boot disk mirror:
vxplex -o rm dis rootvol-02 swapvol-02 home-02
vxunroot does not perform any conversion to disk partitions if any plexes remain on other disks.
