I want to know how to deactivate/delete the paging device on the AIX system. I know some of the steps but just want to clarify the same. Is it goes like this :
# lsps -a
Page Space Physical Volume Volume Group Size %Used Active Auto Type
paging00 hdisk474 rootvg 49152MB 1 yes yes lv
hd6 hdisk472 rootvg 49152MB 1 yes yes lv
#chps -a n /dev/paging00
Actually the thing is I want to use that disk hdisk474 for creating alternate disk installation, as I want to prepare this server for TL12 upgrade. Also, let me know what will be the steps to create the paging space again. kindly verify whether the above steps are correct ?
