Storage Migration from one disk group to another

msk_1227 asked
Hi Experts,

Storage from new frame 123 has been allocated on host  ABC and has to migrate off frame(s) 567  host  ABC in HP-UX(i.e same host migration). The Mount point is /apps.  Does  vgmove work for this situation.

Thanks in Advance

Yes, if you're running HP-UX 11i v3 with the Sept '09 updates, "vgmove" is intended for this purpose.

If you're running an earlier version of HP-UX you can achieve the same result with "pvmove", but you have to use vgextend/vgreduce to add the new PVs to the VG and remove the old ones when the migration is complete
