NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       volsave - Saves a Logical Storage Manager (LSM) configuration

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/volsave [-d dir]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Directs the backup information to the directory  specified
       by dir. This directory must not already exist.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       You  can  save  the  LSM  configuration records for a disk
       group by saving the output of the volprint(8) utility in a
       description  file that the volmake(8) utility can use. The
       volsave command provides an easy way to save this configuration
  information for all disk groups. In addition, volsave
 saves a list of the disks that are under LSM  control
       and   their  attributes.  The  LSM  configuration  can  be
       restored using the volrestore command.

       The volsave command creates an LSM  description  set  that
       consists  of  a  header  file  and  other files containing
       information about the  LSM  configuration.  Refer  to  the
       FILES  section for details on the contents of these files.

       By default, the description set is saved to a  timestamped
       directory     in     /usr/var/lsm/db     (for     example,

       The -d option can be used with volsave to specify  a  particular
  directory  for  the  saved configuration. In this
       case, the -d option must also be used with volrestore when
       restoring the configuration.

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

       You may receive the following error message when using the
       -d dir option with  the  volsave  command:  Directory  dir
       already exists

              This message indicates that the directory you specified
 is already in use. The LSM configuration  can
              only  be  saved  to  a  directory that does not yet
              exist. You can specify a  new  directory  name,  or
              enter the volsave command without the -d option and
              let volsave create a new, timestamped directory  in

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Default directory in which volsave creates the timestamped
       subdirectories with  LSM  description  sets.   Timestamped
       subdirectory  containing LSM description sets (the header,
       voldisk.list, and volboot files). Also contains  subdirectories
  for  each disk group, named diskgroup.d; for example,
 rootdg.d.  Description file that can be used  by  the
       volmake command for all volumes, plexes, and subdisks in a
       disk group. There is one file for each disk group,  stored
       in  the  diskgroup.d  subdirectory.   A description of the
       disks. This file is the output of the  voldisk  list  command.
   A  description of the disk group based on information
 from the voldg list diskgroup command. There  is  one
       file for each disk group, stored in the diskgroup.d subdirectory.
  Saved copy of the /etc/vol/volboot  file.   File
       containing  the  checksum, a magic number, the date of the
       file's creation, and the version of the  volsave  command,
       that volrestore validates before executing.
