Backing up and restoring disk group configuration data

The disk group configuration backup and restoration feature allows you to back up and restore all configuration data for disk groups, and for VxVM objects such as volumes that are configured within the disk groups. The vxconfigbackupd daemon monitors changes to the VxVM configuration and automatically records any configuration changes that occur. By default, vxconfigbackup stores 5 copies of the configuration backup and restoration (cbr) data. You can customize the number of cbr copies, between 1 to 5 copies.

See the vxconfigbackupd(1M) manual page.

VxVM provides the utilities, vxconfigbackup and vxconfigrestore, for backing up and restoring a VxVM configuration for a disk group.
