Adding a volume to a volume set

Description

Adding a volume to a volume set

Having created a volume set containing a single volume, you can use the following command to add further volumes to the volume set:

# vxvset [-g diskgroup] [-f] addvol volset
				volume

For example, to add the volume vol2, to the volume set myvset, use the following command:

# vxvset -g mydg addvol myvset vol2

Warning:

The -f (force) option must be specified if the volume being added, or any volume in the volume set, is either a snapshot or the parent of a snapshot. Using this option can potentially cause inconsistencies in a snapshot hierarchy if any of the volumes involved in the operation is already in a snapshot chain.
