Hi sivaji,

don't worry!

Changing the PP limit (the t-factor) will never disrupt normal LVM operations, and you will be astonished how fast it works.

Just keep a few things in mind -
- The VG must be a standard VG or "big" VG, and must not be a scalable VG.
- In case of a mirrored VG - there must not be any stale partitions. If there are some, issue "varyonvg vgname" beforehand and wait till they're gone.
- In case of HACMP or PowerHA - the VG must not be varied on in concurrent mode - but with a paging VG this is very unlikely, since useless.
- The maximum allowed number of physical volumes will be reduced. So with a factor 2 this number will decrease from the default of 32 to 32 / 2 = 16.
