Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) Replacing Disks with a Larger Disk than the Original, mirror different size disk partitions (Doc ID 1955505.1)

Last updated on APRIL 28, 2017

Applies to:

Sun Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) - Version 11.9.0 to 11.11 [Release 11.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86 (32-bit)

Goal

When the same size disk that an SVM mirror is created with is no longer available a larger one will need to be used.  This article will address one way to deal with this issue.

All references in this document to "SVM" should be taken to refer equally to Solstice DiskSuite and Solaris Volume Manager.
