Specifying a plex for relayout

Any layout can be changed to RAID-5 if there are sufficient disks and space in the disk group. If you convert a mirrored volume to RAID-5, you must specify which plex is to be converted. All other plexes are removed when the conversion has finished, releasing their space for other purposes. If you convert a mirrored volume to a layout other than RAID-5, the unconverted plexes are not removed. You can specify the plex to be converted by naming it in place of a volume:

# vxassist [-g diskgroup] relayout plex [layout=layout] \
