Creating a volume set

To create a volume set for use by Veritas File System (VxFS), use the following command:

# vxvset [-g diskgroup] -t vxfs make volset

Here volset is the name of the volume set, and volume is the name of the first volume in the volume set. The -t vxfs option creates the volume set configured for use by VxFS. You must create the volume before running the command. vxvset will not automatically create the volume.

For example, to create a volume set named myvset that contains the volume vol1, in the disk group mydg, you would use the following command:

# vxvset -g mydg -t vxfs make myvset vol1
