/usr/sbin/pvmove [-n LogicalVolumeName] SourcePhysicalVolumePath [DestinationPhysicalVolumePath ...]
This command is no longer supported on Digital UNIX systems. Features formerly provided by the Logical Volume Manager (LVM) are now provided by the Logical Storage Manager (LSM). Existing LVM volumes must be migrated to LSM, using an encapsulation process. For information about moving LVM volumes to LSM, see the vollvmencap(8) reference page and the manual Logical Storage Manager.
The pvmove command moves allocated physical extents and the data they contain from the source physical volume, SourcePhysicalVolumePath, to one or more other physical volumes. To limit the transfer to specific physical volumes, specify the names of one or more physical volumes with the DestinationPhysicalVolumePath parameter. If you do not specify the destination volume(s), all of the physical volumes in the volume group are available as destination volumes for the transfer. All physical volumes must be within the same volume group. You must not include the SourcePhysicalVolumePath in the list of DestinationPhysicalVolumePath parameters.
The pvmove command will succeed only if there is enough space on the DestinationPhysicalVolumePath to hold all the extents of the SourcePhysicalVolumePath.
This section contains Digital device-specific examples. To move physical extents from rz1c to rz6c and rz7c, enter: pvmove /dev/rz1c /dev/rz6c /dev/rz7c The program moves the physical extents from one physical volume to two others within the same volume group. To move physical extents in logical volume lv02 from rz1c to rz6c, enter: pvmove -n /dev/vg01/lv02 /dev/rz1c /dev/rz6c Only those physical extents contained in lv02 are moved from one physical volume to another.
