Synchronizes or rebuilds the logical volume control block, the device configuration database, and the volume group descriptor areas on the physical volumes.
synclvodm -v -P VolumeGroup LogicalVolume ...
During normal operations, the device configuration database remains consistent with the logical volume manager information in the logical volume control blocks and the volume group descriptor areas on the physical volumes. If for some reason the device configuration database is not consistent with Logical Volume Manager information, the synclvodm command can be used to resynchronize the database. The volume group must be active for the resynchronization to occur (see varyonvg). If logical volume names are specified, only the information related to those logical volumes is updated.
Attention: Do not remove the /dev entries for volume groups or logical volumes. Do not change the device configuration database entries for volume groups or logical volumes using the object data manager.
Note: To use this command, you must either have root user authority or be a member of the system group.
|-P||Preserves the ownership and permissions of the logical volume special files.|
|-v||Specifies that the output from the synclvodm command is displayed in verbose mode.|
To synchronize the device configuration database with the logical volume manager information for rootvg, enter the following:
|/usr/sbin/synclvodm||Contains the synclvodm command.|
