ProcedureHow to Configure a Disk Device Group on the Primary Cluster

Before You Begin

Ensure that you have completed the following tasks:

  1. Access nodeA as superuser.

    nodeA is the first node of the primary cluster. For a reminder of which node is nodeA, see Figure 6–7.

  2. Create a disk group on nodeA that contains four volumes: volume 1, vol01 through volume 4, vol04.

    For information about configuring a disk group by using the VxVM software, see Chapter 4, SPARC: Installing and Configuring VERITAS Volume Manager.

  3. Configure the disk group to create a disk device group.

    nodeA# /usr/cluster/bin/scconf -a \
    -D type=vxvm,name=devicegroup,nodelist=nodeA:nodeB

    The disk device group is called devicegroup.

  4. Create the file system for the disk device group.

    nodeA# /usr/sbin/newfs /dev/vx/rdsk/devicegroup/vol01 < /dev/null
    nodeA# /usr/sbin/newfs /dev/vx/rdsk/devicegroup/vol02 < /dev/null

    No file system is needed for vol03 or vol04, which are instead used as raw volumes.
