About volume sets

Veritas Volume Manager exports a data object called a volume set. A volume set is a container for one or more volumes, each of which can have its own geometry. Unlike the traditional Volume Manager volume, which can be used for raw I/O access or to contain a file system, a volume set can only be used to contain a VxFS file system.

The Volume Manager vxvset command is used to create and manage volume sets. Volume sets cannot be empty. When the last entry is removed, so is the volume set.
