deporting between 3.5 and 4.0

I've spent the day preparing for a move from an old Solaris server with v3.5 to a new Solaris cluster with v4.0. While deporting/importing a test diskgroup back and forth it always needs recovery and starting after having been imported. Now, running vxrecover is not a problem, and it seems to work fine. The question is: Is this normal when moving disk groups between Veritas systems with diffrent versions.

Can I feel confident that this won't destroy any data when I move the real diskgroups with customer data on?

Re: deporting between 3.5 and 4.0

Ok, figured it out. It's been to long since I deported disks between machines manually. This is as it should be, but if you fail DGs between with the cluster software it will take care of it.

Thanks for the followup.
