 lvsync(1M)							  lvsync(1M)
		 Requires Optional HP MirrorDisk/UX Software



 NAME
      lvsync - synchronize stale mirrors in LVM logical volumes

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/lvsync lv_path ...

    Remarks
      This command requires the installation of the optional HP MirrorDisk/UX
      software (not included in the standard HP-UX operating system) before
      it can be used.

 DESCRIPTION
      The lvsync command synchronizes the physical extents of each logical
      volume specified by lv_path.  Synchronization occurs only on physical
      extents that are stale mirrors of the original logical extent.  The
      synchronization process can be time consuming, depending on the
      hardware characteristics and the amount of data.

    Arguments
      lvsync recognizes the following argument:

	   lv_path	       The block device path name of a mirrored
			       logical volume.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    Environment Variables
      LANG determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LANG is not specified or is null, it defaults to "C" (see lang(5)).

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, all
      internationalization variables default to "C" (see environ(5)).

 EXAMPLES
      Synchronize the mirrors on a logical volume:

	   lvsync /dev/vg01/lvol5
