Table A-165 srvctl start volume Parameters

Parameter Description
-volume volume_name

Specify the name of the volume that you want to start. This parameter is required.

-diskgroup disk_group_name

Specify the name of the disk group in which the volume that you want to start resides.

-device volume_device

Specify the path to the volume device that you want to start.

-node node_list

Specify a comma-delimited list of node names where volumes that you want to start reside.

Usage Notes

The srvctl start volume command does not create a volume service. Provided that the volume already exists and the volume resource is enabled, SRVCTL attempts to start it. If the volume exists but the resource is disabled, then srvctl start volume returns an error.


The following example starts a volume named VOLUME1 that resides in a disk group named DATA:

$ srvctl start volume -volume VOLUME1 -diskgroup DATA
