Mirroring SYS

Howdy,

Want to mirror the SYS: volume.

NW 6.5 sp5
Current sys vol is in two segments (not sure how that happened) on a
single disk.
new disk has more free space.

what steps to follow?

TIA!

Gary

Re: Mirroring SYS

Load nssmu. Find the partition SYS is on. Hit F3. Point it to the new
disk space. You're done.

Thanks, Andrew!

When I look in NSSMU at partitions I see there are two partitions for
SYS:

NSS - P:0x12 (57.59GB)
NSS - P:0xF ( 9.76GB)

New drive has 68.36 GB free space.

If I select either of the existing SYS partitions to mirror will it
automatically mirror both or just the partition I selected?

If it doesn't mirror both automatically, will it leave enough space on
the new drive to mirror the second partition?

TIA!!

Just the one you select -- mirroring is a partition operation, but SYS is
a pool construct.

I come up with 67.35, so it will be close, but should work. All the
"overhead" is already accounted for in the numbers you posted. There's no
hotfix calculation in NW65.
