Displaying the DMP configuration for native LVM support
See Migrating LVM volume groups to DMP
When DMP is enabled for native devices, the dmp_native_support attribute displays as ON. When the tunable is ON, all DMP disks are available for native volumes except:
Devices that have a VxVM label
If you initialize a disk for VxVM use, then the native multi-pathing feature is automatically disabled for the disk. When the VxVM label is removed, the native multi-pathing is enabled.
Devices that are multi-pathed with Third-party drivers
If a disk is already multi-pathed with a third-party driver (TPD), DMP does not manage the devices unless TPD support is removed.
To display whether DMP is enabled
Display the attribute
# vxdmpadm gettune dmp_native_support
dmp_native_support tunable is ON, use the vxdisk list command to display available volumes. Volumes available to LVM display with the TYPE auto:none. Volumes that are already in use by LVM display with the TYPE auto:LVM.
