Hot-relocation automatically restores redundancy and access to mirrored and RAID-5 volumes when a disk fails. This is done by relocating the affected subdisks to disks designated as spares and/or free space in the same disk group.
The hot-relocation feature is enabled by default. The associated daemon,
vxrelocd, is automatically started during system startup.
Follow these recommendations:
If you decide to disable hot-relocation, prevent
vxrelocd from running after you load the VxVM software. See the section "Modifying the behavior of Hot-Relocation" in Chapter 9 of the VERITAS Volume Manager Administrator's Guide for details.
