I have looking to change the MAX PV setting on a VG
I de-activated the VG. Say the MAX_PV is currrently 50 (and my ACT/CUR PV is 50)..after running "vgmodify -t /dev/vgxxx", I was able to change it to 80 (as an example) without "renumbering", using "vgmodify -p xx /dev/vgxx"
I really want to double from 50 to 100, then I have to use the -n option.
When I run "vgmodify -p xx -n /dev/vgxxx" , its returns error saying extend 0 on certain PVs must be freed.
So I learned I need to move extent 0 to a free extent on the SAME DISK..using"pvmove /dev/dsk/cxxtyydz:0 /dev/dsk/cxxtyydz" but wait I cant!! ALL PVS (extents) allocated/in use!
What do I do?
Solved! Go to Solution.

think i have the answer.. I discovered that you can move extent 0 from disk X to ANY disk with free extents (in the same VG of course). I will extend the VG by 1 free disk as i need...
