Hello Anthony, <div>&nbsp;</div> Was aware of the chvg -U, but was not aware of the lsvg -L. <br /> I am now though. That is good to know, especially when you need to see the 'state of play' of teh LV , when doing LV maint work. <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> dxtans

Yes, it's surprising what you learn along the way. <div>&nbsp;</div> It's not related directly to what you need at the moment, but have a look at the varyonvg command's '-s' flag. It lets you activate a volume group and run LVM commands on the VG, but leaves the I/O read-only for the data files. Very useful if you were importing a SAN-replicated volume group, but didn't want to update any data, for example for DR purposes. Here's the command documentation: http://bit.ly/PUfiVi <div>&nbsp;</div>
