I am having a slightly brain dead moment with a problem I have seen before but the cause escapes me...
When running a savevg command on an AIX 6.1 lpar despite the actual volume group have several thousand files within its associated LV's the savevg backs up successfully, but it only backs up 6 files, namely the vgdata files and NOTHING else, what am I missing here...?
Here is the output from the savevg command I am using:
# /usr/bin/savevg -i -e -v -X -f /export/backup/oradbvg.20120502_114145 oradbvg
Creating information file for volume group oradbvg.
Creating list of files to back up.
Backing up 6 files

I have tried this on a number of the volume groups and they all do the same...
Somebody please beat me with a stick and tell me what I am missing here?
