After you physically add shared disks to the nodes, you must initialize them as VxVM disks and verify that all the nodes see the same disk. Use the example procedure; see the Veritas Volume Manager Administrator's Guide for more information on adding and configuring disks.
To initialize disks
ioscan -nfC disk
The HP-UX man page for the
insf command instructs you to run the command in single-user mode only. Running
insf -e in multi-user mode is acceptable assuming no other user is accessing any of the device files. This command can change the mode, owner, or group of an existing special (device) file, or unlink and recreate a file. Special files that are currently open may be left in an indeterminate state.
