Pinned topic Carmel advisors : IBM AIX 5.3 Information about disks

‏2013-11-03T02:42:54Z | 5.3 aix ibm

I currently work on IBM AIX servers using LVM for storage.
The problem is that some of my disks are seen by multiple servers. I wanted to know if there is a way to get information about the usage of these disks. For example, if I do a  'lspv' command and I recover the disk 'hdiskXX' and that disk is in use by another server, I just doa 'lqueryvg-Atp hdiskXX' to know if it s actualy used...

Only disks that are part of VG assets are currently detected by this command, so are there any command that can read the header records and tell me whether or not this disc has already been allocated.

I hope I was clear enough

Thank you in advance for your help,
