Solstice DiskSuite 4.2.1 Reference Guide

Overview of the File

The /etc/lvm/ file is a backup file of the DiskSuite configuration for a "local" diskset. You use the file for recovering from failures. Whenever you make a configuration change, the file is automatically updated (except for hot sparing). You never edit the file directly. If your system loses the information maintained in the metadevice state database, and as long as no metadevices were changed or created in the meantime, you can use the file to recover. Refer to Solstice DiskSuite 4.2.1 User's Guide for more information.
