VxVM and boot disk failure

Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) protects systems from disk and other hardware failures and helps you to recover from such events. Recovery procedures help you prevent loss of data or system access due to the failure of the boot (root) disk. It also includes procedures for repairing the root (/) and usr file systems.

The procedures for recovering volumes and their data on boot disks differ from the procedures that are used for non-boot disks.

See "Recovering from hardware failure" on page 7.

  Note   The examples assume that the boot (root) disk is configured on the device c0t0d0s2. Your system may be configured to use a different device.
