NAME [Toc] [Back]
vxevac - evacuate all volumes from a disk
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
/etc/vx/bin/vxevac [-g diskgroup] [-t tasktag] medianame
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The vxevac utility moves subdisks off the specified VERITAS Volume
Manager (VxVM) disk (medianame) to the specified destination disks
(new_medianame...). If no new_medianame arguments are specified, any
non-volatile, non-reserved disks can be used as destination disks.
Subdisks that are part of unmirrored striped plexes are moved by
moving the entire plex to a new location.
Note: This operation assumes that there is sufficient space in the
disk group for the operation to complete. If the process runs out of
space, some of the volumes on the disk may not be evacuated.
vxevac is usually called from the vxdiskadm menus.
A medianame argument is an administrative name used to define a disk
within a disk group.
OPTIONS [Toc] [Back]
Specifies the disk group for the operation, either by disk
group ID or by disk group name.
Specifies an administrative operation to perform by the
numeric identifier tasktag. See vxtask(1M) for information
on VERITAS Volume Manager tasks.
