After vxvmconvert

Before running vxvmconvert, there is this


PV /dev/sdb1   VG VG_DATA   lvm2 [150.00 GiB / 50.00 GiB free]


After running vxvmconvert the above is NOT reported by pvscan, as expected.

This is reported:

vxdisk list
DEVICE       TYPE            DISK         GROUP        STATUS
sda          auto:LVM        -            -            online invalid
sdb          auto:none       -            -            online invalid
sdb1         simple          VG_DATA01    VG_DATA      online

My question is: Are sdb and sdb1 now different disks so that sdb can be initialized as a VxVM disk?
