Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS

SPARC: Setting Up a Root Disk Group Overview

As of VxVM 4.0, the creation of a root disk group is optional. If you do not intend to create a root disk group, proceed to SPARC: How to Install VERITAS Volume Manager Software.

For VxVM 3.5, each cluster node requires the creation of a root disk group after VxVM is installed. This root disk group is used by VxVM to store configuration information, and has the following restrictions.

Sun Cluster software supports the following methods to configure the root disk group.

See your VxVM installation documentation for more information.
