Creating Disk Sets in a Cluster

This section describes how to create disk sets for a cluster configuration. When you create a Solaris Volume Manager disk set in an Oracle Solaris Cluster environment, the disk set is automatically registered with the Oracle Solaris Cluster software as a device group of type svm. To create or delete an svm device group, you must use Solaris Volume Manager commands and utilities to create or delete the underlying disk set of the device group.

The following table lists the tasks that you perform to create disk sets. Complete the procedures in the order that is indicated.

(Optional) Repartition drives in a disk set to allocate space to different slices.
