Renaming a disk

If you do not specify a VM disk name, VxVM gives the disk a default name when you add the disk to VxVM control. The VM disk name is used by VxVM to identify the location of the disk or the disk type.

 To rename a disk

You would use the following command to rename the disk.

# vxedit -g mydg rename mydg03 mydg02

To confirm that the name change took place, use the vxdisk list command again:

# vxdisk list
