Displaying spare disk information
Use the following command to display information about spare disks that are available for relocation:
# vxdg [-g diskgroup] spare
The following is example output:
GROUP DISK DEVICE TAG OFFSET LENGTH FLAGS
mydg mydg02 sdc sdc 0 658007 s
Here mydg02 is the only disk designated as a spare in the mydg disk group. The LENGTH field indicates how much spare space is currently available on mydg02 for relocation.
The following commands can also be used to display information about disks that are currently designated as spares:
vxdisk list lists disk information and displays spare disks with a spare flag.
vxprint lists disk and other information and displays spare disks with a SPARE flag.
The list menu item on the vxdiskadm main menu lists all disks including spare disks.
