ProcedureSPARC: How to Register Disk Group Configuration Changes (Veritas Volume Manager)

When you change any configuration information for a VxVM disk group or volume, you need to register the configuration changes for the Sun Cluster device group. Registration ensures that the global namespace is in the correct state.

The phys-schost# prompt reflects a global-cluster prompt. Perform this procedure on a global cluster.

This procedure provides the long forms of the Sun Cluster commands. Most commands also have short forms. Except for the long and short forms of the command names, the commands are identical. For a list of the commands and their short forms, see Appendix B, Sun Cluster Object-Oriented Commands.

  1. Become superuser or assume a role that provides solaris.cluster.modify RBAC authorization on any node in the cluster.

  2. Start the clsetup utility.

    # clsetup

    The Main Menu is displayed.

  3. To work with VxVM device groups, type the number that corresponds to the option for device groups and volumes.

    The Device Groups Menu is displayed.

  4. To register configuration changes, type the number that corresponds to the option for synchronizing volume information for a VxVM device group.

    Follow the instructions and type the name of the VxVM disk group that has changed configuration.

Example 5–25 SPARC: Registering Veritas Volume Manager Disk Group Configuration Changes

The following example shows the cldevicegroup command generated by clsetup a changed VxVM device group (dg1) is registered. This example assumes that the VxVM disk group and volume were created previously.

# clsetup
cldevicegroup sync dg1
