AIX New Harddrive Configuration
Posted on 2011-03-06
Install ISCSI on AIX, we see the harddrives in lsdev -Cc disk
The drives are presented from a netapp appliance to AIX 6.1 server
hdisk2-5 were created.
What are the steps after that so that we can mount the drives,
do I need to create a VG? when I have tried mount //dev/hdisk2 /test,
it will error about about not having a logfile, if I give it a log file via the -o
option, it fails on mount i/o.
I have looked at smit, but not sure of the VG options, create normal, big.
are these what needs to be done next?
mkvg -y iscsi_vg hdisk1
mklv -t jfs2log -y logiscsi_vg iscsi_vg 1
mklv -t jfs2 -y iscsilv iscsi_vg 64G
then make file system
What I am worried about is overwriting any data on the Netapp drives, I am told
there is data there.
