"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can do importvg with the -y option and specify the volume group name you want. If you don't specify it, the system picks the next vg name. For example:

importvg -y myvg hdisk01

It's a little confusing

"importvg -y hdiskx" is not right, -y option is to give a name to your VG.

Also, is this name is already used you can not import it with the same name.  You should

"importvg -y YOUR_NEW_NAME hdiskx"
