/opt/VRTS/bin/vxconfigbackup – Back up disk group configuration

  1. The vxconfigbackup utility can be used to back up the configuration information for one or more disk groups manually at any desired time.
  2. The vxconfigbackupd daemon automatically backs up a disk group’s new configuration to the default backup directory whenever the configuration is changed.
  3. The disk group configuration backup and restore utilities do not save any data in the public region.
  4. This includes only file system or other application data that is configured within VERITAS Volume Manager (VxVM) objects.
