Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Data Replication Guide for Hitachi TrueCopy

ProcedureHow to Configure the VERITAS Volume Manager Volumes for Use With Hitachi TrueCopy Replication

Hitachi TrueCopy supports VERITAS Volume Manager volumes and raw-disk device groups. If you are using VERITAS Volume Manager, you must configure VERITAS Volume Manager volumes on disks d1 and d2.

Caution – Caution –

If you are using storage-based replication, do not configure a replicated volume as a quorum device. The Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software does not support Hitachi TrueCopy S-VOL and Command Device as a Sun Cluster quorum device. See Using Storage-Based Data Replication in Sun Cluster System Administration Guide for Solaris OS for more information.

  1. Create VERITAS Volume Manager disk groups on shared disks in cluster-paris.

    For example, the d1 and d2 disks are configured as part of a VERITAS Volume Manager disk group, which is called oradg1, by using commands, such as vxdiskadm and vxdg.

  2. After configuration is complete, verify that the disk group was created by using the vxdg list command.

    This command should list oradg1 as a disk group.

  3. Create the VERITAS Volume Manager volume.

    For example, a volume that is called vol1 is created in the oradg1 disk group. The appropriate VERITAS Volume Manager commands, such as vxassist, are used to configure the volume.
