  • Hello...

    Very tedious to answer..... because these are all procedures.... & some of them lie outside Veritas...

    1. Refer vxvm admin guide..
    2. Refer solaris admin guide..
    3. Should start with running commands & see responses... check server performance stats with iostat/vmstat/netstat
    4. No Idea
    5. There should be a panic string in messages file.. If crash dump configured a crash dump should be available in /var/crash
    6. "vxdisk list" command will show if disk is failed...
    7. If you want to replace disk in Veritas (assuming hardware disk is replaced), use "vxdiskadm" menu, option 3 & 4

    Hope this helps..
