Any word on when the rendev command will be fixed in 7.1? Just checked all the way up to TL2 SP1 and I don't see any mention of it. Thanks.

Hi Chris, <div>&nbsp;</div> I am wonderin is there any way for change rootvg disk name without mirroring it?. <br /> I guess the rendev command desn't support for rootvg disk and we cannot use -P flag as you know. <br /> ----------------------------------------------------- <br /> bash-3.2# lspv <br /> hdisk2 00c3dbae78134537 rootvg active <br /> bash-3.2# rendev -l hdisk2 -n hdisk0 <br /> Method error (/etc/methods/ucfgdevice): <br /> 0514-062 Cannot perform the requested function because the <br /> specified device is busy. <div>&nbsp;</div> bash-3.2# rendev -l hdisk2 -n hdisk0 -P <br /> rendev: illegal option -- P <div>&nbsp;</div> Usage: rendev -l Name [-n NewName] [-u] <br /> ----------------------------------------------------------------- <br /> Thanks.

OK I see you another technote: <br /> https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/blogs/cgaix/entry/in_a_perfect_world_rootvg_would_always_reside_on_hdisk0?lang=en <div>&nbsp;</div> and so I understand the mirrorvg is only way for change name of rootvg disk:)

Chris, a colleague advised me of an option on the chdev command to rename devices: <br /> chdev -l rmt0 -a new_name=rmt10 <div>&nbsp;</div> I've never noticed this command before and I can't find that attribute (-a new_name) in the chdev command documentation I've looked at. Do you have any thoughts on whether this command is possible, and whether there'd be any reason to change a device name using the chdev command rather than rendev?

Hi Anthony, I think your colleague is referring to renaming (a)tape devices specifically. This procedure was for renaming tape devices (with the atape device driver installed) ONLY.https://www-304.ibm.com/support/entdocview.wss?uid=isg3T1000748
