Partioning a 6Gb drive into 3 2Gb drives under 10.20

I am familiar with HP-UX 9.X (yes we still use it) but as for 10.X it is still
new to me. My question is as follows I need to partition my application disk
(which is a 6Gb) into 3 2Gb drives. So I created a entry in the /etc/disktab
file with the new partitions and off I went to newfs the disk. But it didn't
work since it is not looking in the disktab file. The command that I was
trying was "newfs -v -L /dev/rdsk/c0t1d1 SEAGATE_ST32151N_500MB" (I know that
there is a -F option for 10.X and I tried that along with all the other
options). Any insight into this would be appreciated.

Using LVM??
Create a physical volume( pvcreate )
Create a volume group and allocate the disk to the group ( vgcreate )
Create 3 2gb logical volumes ( lvcreate ).
You may need other LVM commands to make this work. Hopefully it will work with
a 6gb drive.
Good Luck...

try it by using "sam"


at first select "Disks and FileSystems"

after this you can choose the "File systems" topic.

and with the Menu "List" or "Action" you can do your request.
