i use vxlicrep to make sure veritas volume manger is installed or not.

on host HP-UX,
vxlicrep works fine, it is found in /usr/sbin  

on host Solaris,
vxlicrep does not work, it is not found in /usr/sbin
however, veritas is installed in solaris, because i can see vxdiskunsetup, /etc/vx/bin/vxdiskunsetup
