The following features can be implemented using multi-volume support:
Controlling where files are stored can be selected at multiple levels so that specific files or file hierarchies can be assigned to different volumes. This functionality is available in the Veritas File System SmartTier feature.
Guaranteeing that a dataonly volume being unavailable does not cause a metadataok volume to be unavailable.
See Volume availability.
To use the multi-volume file system features, Veritas Volume Manager must be installed and the volume set feature must be accessible. The volume set feature is separately licensed.
