Hi,
   I cannot run vxdiskadd using redirect;
the /tmp/commands contains:
y
q



it produces the following errors:

cat: write error: Bad file number


cat /tmp/commands |vxdiskadd c0t0d0
produces the following errors:

Add or initialize disks
Menu: VolumeManager/Disk/AddDisks
Broken Pipe
Broken Pipe


Is there a way to feed input to the vxdiskadm vxvm?

thanks

Try
/etc/vx/bin/vxdisksetup -i cxtxdx (initial disk)
/usr/sbin/vxdg [-g diskgroup] adddisk DmName=cxtxdx (add disk to disk group)
