Stopping and starting volume sets

Description

Stopping and starting volume sets

Under some circumstances, you may need to stop and restart a volume set. For example, a volume within the set may have become detached, as shown here:

# vxvset -g mydg list set1

VOLUME           INDEX           LENGTH         KSTATE        CONTEXT
vol1                 0         12582912       DETACHED        -
vol2                 1         12582912        ENABLED        -
vol3                 2         12582912        ENABLED        -

To stop and restart one or more volume sets, use the following commands:

# vxvset [-g diskgroup] stop volset ...
# vxvset [-g diskgroup] start volset ...
		

For the example given previously, the effect of running these commands on the component volumes is shown below:

# vxvset -g mydg stop set1

# vxvset -g mydg list set1

VOLUME           INDEX           LENGTH         KSTATE        CONTEXT
vol1                 0         12582912       DISABLED        -
vol2                 1         12582912       DISABLED        -
vol3                 2         12582912       DISABLED        -

# vxvset -g mydg start set1

# vxvset -g mydg list set1

VOLUME           INDEX           LENGTH         KSTATE        CONTEXT
vol1                 0         12582912        ENABLED        -
vol2                 1         12582912        ENABLED        -
vol3                 2         12582912        ENABLED        -
