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
how can i find on solaris whether veritas volume manger is installed or not...

can i use generalize method for all host
Watch Question

You can find where it is installed by doing the following:

cd /var/sadm/install
grep vxlicrep contents

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
or, to see what Veritas licenses you do have on a Solaris host, including VXVM and VXFS:

/usr/sbin/vxlicense -p

(not sure if this requires admin or root privileges)
pkginfo | grep VRTS is your answer.
To see the version of Volume Manager:

pkginfo -l VRTSvxvm


pkginfo does not woeks for all type of OS
Hanno P.S.IT Consultant and Infrastructure Architect
a) pkginfo works for all types of Unix System V.4
b) Depending on Veritas' version you may use "vxlicense -p" or "vxlicrep"
