EMC Symmetrix Remote Data Facility data replication is supported with VERITAS Volume Manager volumes and raw-disk device groups. If you are using VERITAS Volume Manager, you must configure VERITAS Volume Manager volumes on the disks you selected for your EMC Symmetrix Remote Data Facility device group.
On cluster-paris, create VERITAS Volume Manager disk groups on shared disks that will be replicated to the partner cluster cluster-newyork.
For example, the d1 and d2 disks are configured as part of a VERITAS Volume Manager disk group which is called dg1, by using commands such as vxdiskadm and vxdg. These disks are the ones that will be replicated to the partner cluster.
After configuration is complete, verify that the disk group was created by using the vxdg list command.
This command should list dg1 as a disk group.
Create the VERITAS Volume Manager volume.
For example, a volume that is called vol1 is created in the dg1 disk group. The appropriate VERITAS Volume Manager commands, such as vxassist, are used to configure the volume.
Perform the steps in How to Configure the Sun Cluster Device Group for a VERITAS Volume Manager Disk Group to configure the VERITAS Volume Manager volume as a Sun Cluster device group.
