4. In VOLUTIL scratch each disk drive in each volume set

5. Take down the system and replace disk drives that will be replaced

6. Bring up the system and issue a :DSTAT ALL and ensure that each disk drive is in a SCRATCH or UNKNOWN state

7. Recreate the mirror volume set:

Re: restore user volume sets

Some people would add a ;CREATE on the restore to catch any files whose creator no longer exists.

Re: restore user volume sets

Hello Kevin,

Steps look good to me.

I assume the backup is a full backup with ;directory option and ;onvs=mpexl_system_volume_set,prod,xdata

I would also add ;progress on the restore command so you can see the progression of the restore operation.
