VXVM(veritas volume manager training)


Objective:

Learn how to integrate, operate,  VERITAS Storage Foundation in a Solaris environment. This training provides instruction on operational management procedures for VERITAS Volume Manager (VxVM) and you will learn how to install and configure VERITAS Volume Manager and how to manage disks, disk groups, and volumes by using  from the command line.For your kind information In this training , I am not going to explain the theory in depth.

Instead of spending money on training courses , you can learn vxvm yourself by reading this blog and if you have any doubt ,please leave a comment. I will get back to you as soon as possible.


Prerequisites:

1.Skills:Knowledge of UNIX system administration
2.Lab: VM Solaris 10 or physical machine with solaris 10,vxvm 5.0 and above version software.

VXVM objects:

There are several Volume Manager objects that must be understood before you can use the Volume Manager to perform disk management tasks:
Physical objects:
1.Physical disks – Its a physical disk or LUN from storage.

Virtual objects:

VM disks 

A VM disk is a contiguous area of disk space from which the Volume  Manager allocates storage.Its nothing but a public region of disk.

Disk groups 
A disk group is a collection of VM disks that share a common configuration.

Subdisks

A subdisk is a set of contiguous disk blocks.A VM disk can be divided into one or more subdisks.

Plexes 

The Volume Manager uses subdisks to build virtual entities called plexes.A plex consists of one or more subdisks located on one or more disks

Volumes

A volume is a virtual disk device that appears to applications, databases, and file systems like a physical disk partition, but does not have the physical limitations of a physical disk partition.
