Solaris Cluster 3.2 supports creating local VxVM disk group using clsetup or cldevicegroup command. The procedure is documented in "Software Installation Guide" as follows.

1. Become superuser on the node that will own the disk group
2. Create the VxVM disk groups and volumes
3. For local disk groups, set the localonly property and add a single node to the disk group's node list
a. Start the clsetup utility.
b. Choose the menu item, Device groups and volumes.
c. Choose the menu item, Set localonly on a VxVM disk group.
d. Follow the instructions to set the localonly property and to specify the single node that will exclusively owner the disk group.
e. When finished, quit the clsetup utility.
However, even if you follow this procedure, you will not be able to access to those volumes in the disk group by ENXIO (No such device or address).
