Disk and filesystem management

AIX: moving filesystem between volume groups by ogniemi
Posted: 3 Dec 04

Step 1) Close the source LV (umount filesystem)

# umount /fs_on_testvg1

Step 2) Copy the source LV to another VG

# cplv -v new_vg -y newname_lv oldname_lv
cplv: Logical volume loglv01 successfully copied to newname_lv .

Step 3) Change filesystem's lv and log device (with these residing on new new_vg).

# chfs -a dev=/dev/newname_lv -a log=/dev/jfslogvg2_lv /fs_on_testvg1

Step 4) Remove old (source) LV.

# rmlv -f oldname_lv

Step 5) Change the LV name: newname_lv to oldname_lv

chlv -n NewLogicalVolume LogicalVolume

I our case:
# chlv -n oldname_lv newname_lv

Step 6) Mount the filesystem

# mount /fs_on_testvg1
