Displaying the raw device access settings for a volume set

Description

Displaying the raw device access settings for a volume set

You can use the vxprint -m command to display the current settings for a volume set. If the makedev attribute is set to on, one of the following strings is displayed in the output:

vset_devinfo=on:read-only

Raw device nodes in read-only mode.

vset_devinfo=on:read-write

Raw device nodes in read-write mode.

A string is not displayed if makedev is set to off.

If the output from the vxprint -m command is fed to the vxmake command to recreate a volume set, the vset_devinfo attribute must set to off. Use the vxvset set command to re-enable raw device access with the desired access mode.
