ProcedureSPARC: How to Encapsulate the Root Disk

Perform this procedure to create a root disk group by encapsulating the UFS root disk. Root disk groups are optional. See your VxVM documentation for more information.

Note –

If your root disk uses ZFS, you can only create a root disk group on local nonroot disks. If you want to create a root disk group on nonroot disks, instead perform procedures in How to Create a Root Disk Group on a Nonroot Disk.

Before You Begin

Ensure that you have installed VxVM as described in How to Install Veritas Volume Manager Software.

  1. Become superuser on a node that you installed with VxVM.

  2. Encapsulate the UFS root disk.

    phys-schost# clvxvm encapsulate

    See the clvxvm(1CL) man page for more information.

  3. Repeat for any other node on which you installed VxVM.

Next Steps

To mirror the encapsulated root disk, go to How to Mirror the Encapsulated Root Disk.

Otherwise, go to Creating Disk Groups in a Cluster.
