 NAME
      vxbootsetup - set up system boot information on a VERITAS Volume
      Manager disk

 SYNOPSIS
      /etc/vx/bin/vxbootsetup [medianame ... ]

 DESCRIPTION
      The vxbootsetup utility configures physical disks so that they can be
      used to boot the system. Before vxbootsetup is called to configure a
      disk, the required volumes, standvol, rootvol and swapvol (and
      optionally, dumpvol) must be created on the disk.	 All of these
      volumes must be contiguous with only one subdisk.

      If no medianame arguments are specified, all disks that contain usable
      mirrors of the root, swap, /usr and /var volumes are configured to be
      bootable.

      If medianame arguments are given, only the disks that are associated
      with the specified disk names are configured to be bootable.

      vxbootsetup requires that:

      +	   The root volume must be named rootvol and must have a usage type
	   of root.

      +	   The swap volume must be named swapvol and must have a usage type
	   of swap.

      +	   The volumes containing /usr and /var (if any) must be named usr
	   and var, respectively.

      See the chapter "Recovery from Boot Disk Failure" in the VERITAS
      Volume Manager Troubleshooting Guide for detailed information on how
      the system boots and how VxVM impacts the system boot process.  The
      vxmirror, vxrootmir, and vxresize utilities call vxbootsetup
      automatically.  If you use vxassist, or vxmake and vxplex to create
      mirrors of the root volume on a disk, you must run vxbootsetup
      explicitly to make the disk bootable.

 ARGUMENTS
      medianame
	   Specifies the disk name (disk media name) of a VM disk that is to
	   be configured as bootable.
