 dgcfgbackup(1M)                  VxVM 3.5                   dgcfgbackup(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      dgcfgbackup - create or update VxVM volume group configuration backup

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/dgcfgbackup [-f  dg_conf_path ] dg_name

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The dgcfgbackup command saves the VxVM configuration for a disk group
      in a default or alternate configuration backup file (see the
      description of the-f option).

      By default, dgcfgbackup is run automatically each time that a VxVM
      command changes the VxVM configuration.  In this case, it always uses
      the default configuration backup file.  An existing default
      configuration backup file is renamed with an extension of

    Options and Arguments    [Toc]    [Back]
      dg_name   Specifies the name of a disk group.

      -f  dg_conf_path
                Saves the configuration using an alternate file name
                specified by dg_conf_path.  If this option is omitted, the
                default file name is /etc/vxvmconf/dg_name.conf.

 EXIT CODES    [Toc]    [Back]
      dgcfgbackup exits with a zero status on successful completion.  An
      non-zero exit status indicates that errors occurred when information
      from the disk group was being accessed.

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      Back up VxVM configuration information for disk group testdg in the
      default backup file /etc/vxvmconf/testdg.conf:

      dgcfgbackup testdg

      Back up VxVM configuration information for disk group datadg in the
      alternate configuration backup file /tmp/datadg.backup:

      dgcfgbackup -f /tmp/datadg.backup datadg

 NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]
      It is recommended that any alternate configuration backup file be
      created in the root file system (as is the case with the default path
      name).  This facilitates disk group recovery during maintenance mode,
      such as after a system crash.
