AIX LV rename questions

Hi,

I need help with a lv_test5 that must be renamed in lv_test12. It's a raw device now.

Except chlv, do I have to run some other commands?


chlv -n lv_test12 lv_test5

Thank you!

Hi wmp,

I was thinking, if the LV was in use by a application for example, AIX wouldn't perform the lv rename, is that right?

Yes. it will produce an error message:

0516-708 chlv: Cannot rename open logical volume.

Very robust. I know, you told me.

Thank you for your effort!
