My notes using AIX

AIX Create Volume Group, Logical Volume dan File System From New Disk /LUN

Create Volume Group (VG)

Use the cfgmgr command to scan and identify all installed configurations.


Use lspv command to see the pv configuration.


hdisk18         00f86d5fa9781a05                    rootvg          active
hdisk27         00f86d5fa99e3994                    datavg          active
hdisk30         none                                None            active

Based on the example above, there is a hdisk30 on the system that has not been configured anything. Use the command bootinfo -s hdiskxx to find out the size of the LUN.

#bootinfo -s hdisk30
