Copy a Volume Group

view story

http://www.unix.com – Hi: I have an aix lpar with a vgroup that has 12 disks for a total of 1.9 TB assign and i want to move that data to a new vgroup on the same machine that has (6) disks for a total of 2.5 TB. What would be the best way to copy the actual vg with (12) disks to the new vg with (6) disks? We need to maintain the same mounting points so the new vg will be varyon and file sytems mounted and the actual then will be varyoff if we need to go back. I will appreciate any help and information. Thanks (HowTos)
