Displaying disk information

Before you use a disk, you need to know if it has been initialized and placed under Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) control. You also need to know if the disk is part of a disk group, because you cannot create volumes on a disk that is not part of a disk group. The vxdisk list command displays device names for all recognized disks, the disk names, the disk group names associated with each disk, and the status of each disk.
