How to install a new hard drive in AIX 4.3.3
Posted on 2004-03-24
I just installed a 6th hard drive (hdisk5) on my AIX 4.3.3 system, but I can't get it configured. Following is a list of instructions I did. What do I do next to get this hard drive on my 'usevg' volume group?
# lsdev -Cc disk
hdisk0 Available 10-60-00-8,0 16 Bit SCSI Disk Drive
hdisk1 Available 10-60-00-9,0 16 Bit SCSI Disk Drive
hdisk2 Available 10-60-00-10,0 16 Bit SCSI Disk Drive
hdisk3 Available 10-60-00-11,0 16 Bit SCSI Disk Drive
hdisk4 Available 10-60-00-13,0 16 Bit LVD SCSI Disk Drive
hdisk5 Defined 10-60-00-13,0 Other SCSI Disk Drive
# chdev -l hdisk5 -a pv=yes
# extendvg usevg hdisk5
