Hi -

lspv is the command to check your physical volume(s). lslv and lsvg to check your logical volumes and volume groups.

'Hope that helps .. PSM

Try lspv with the following

Run lspv to see how many disks you have. Then run this:

lspv -l hdisk0 (or hdisk1) depending on what drive you want to see that will give you the LP and PP (showing if it's mirrored or not) as well as the mount point

then run

lspv hdisk0 (or again hdisk1, hdisk3) to see the capacity, what volume group it belongs to how many free PP (physical partitions) are available etc.

Hope this helps!

lsattr -El hdisk1 | grep size

Ofcourse if you add it to a volume group you just type:
lspv hdisk1
