So you need to find disks that aren't already in a volume group?

The easiest way would be to use SAM (Or SMH if using HP-UX 11i v3); In the LVM section, go to create a new Volume Group and you will be given a list of available disks.

Before changing anything, check that the system isn't using raw disk for the applications - raw disks will appear as available in SAM, but using them would trash the system.

Also, if you use Veritas Volume Manager rather than LVM, you should only use this suggestion to to check disk availability.
