Moving disks between disk groups

To move a disk between disk groups, remove the disk from one disk group and add it to the other. For example, to move the physical disk hdisk14 (attached with the disk name salesdg04) from disk group salesdg and add it to disk group mktdg, use the following commands:

# vxdg -g salesdg rmdisk salesdg04 
# vxdg -g mktdg adddisk mktdg02=hdisk14


This procedure does not save the configurations nor data on the disks.

You can also move a disk by using the vxdiskadm command. Select Remove a disk from the main menu, and then select Add or initialize a disk.
