vxedit command changes attributes of subdisks and other VxVM objects. To change subdisk attributes, use the following command:
vxedit [-g diskgroup
] set attribute
=value ... subdisk ...
Subdisk fields that can be changed using the
vxedit command include:
putiln field attributes are maintained on reboot;
tutiln fields are temporary and are not retained on reboot. VxVM sets the
tutil0 utility fields. Other Symantec products, such as the Veritas Enterprise Administrator (VEA), set the
tutil1 fields. The
tutil2 are available for you to use for site-specific purposes. The length field,
len, can only be changed if the subdisk is dissociated.
For example, to change the comment field of a subdisk named
mydg02-01 in the disk group,
mydg, use the following command:
vxedit -g mydg set comment=
To prevent a particular subdisk from being associated with a plex, set the
putil0 field to a non-null string, as shown in the following command:
vxedit -g mydg set putil0="DO-NOT-USE" mydg02-01
