The advanced approach consists of a number of commands that typically require you to specify detailed input. These commands use a "building block" approach that requires you to have a detailed knowledge of the underlying structure and components to manually perform the commands necessary to accomplish a certain task. Advanced operations are performed using several different VxVM commands.
To create a volume using the advanced approach, perform the following steps in the order specified:
plex, and associate subdisks with them.
The steps to create the subdisks and plexes, and to associate the plexes with the volumes can be combined by using a volume description file with the
