This appendix describes how to migrate LVM volume groups to VxVM disk groups for use with the Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM), or with the Cluster Volume Manager (CVM) on systems that support it. Topics are as follows:

The emphasis is on the steps you must take to manage the cluster and packages during migration; detailed instructions for configuring VxVM disk groups are at http://docs.hp.com in the Veritas Volume Manager Administrator’s Guide and the Veritas Volume Manager Migration Guide for your VxVM version. Refer to Chapter 5 of the present manual for information on creating basic storage for a new system starting with fresh disks.

The procedures described below can be carried out while the cluster is running, but any package that uses a volume group that is being migrated must be halted. For disk groups that will be used with the Cluster Volume Manager (CVM), on systems that support it, an additional set of steps is provided.
