vxevac - evacuate all volumes from a disk


/etc/vx/bin/vxevac [ -g diskgroup ] medianame [ new_medianame ... ]


The vxevac script moves subdisks off the specified Volume Manager disk (medianame) to the specified destination disks (new_medianame ...). If no new medianame operands are specified, then any non-volatile, non-reserved disks can be used as destination disks. Subdisks that are part of unmirrored striped plexes will be moved by moving the entire plex to a new location.

This operation presumes that sufficient space exists elsewhere in the disk group for it to complete the operation. If the process runs out of space, then not all of the volumes on the disk may be evacuated.

This script is usually called from the vxdiskadm menus.
