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...

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

cd /var/sadm/install
grep vxlicrep contents

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
