 NAME
      vximportdg - import a disk group into the VERITAS Volume Manager
      configuration

 SYNOPSIS
      vximportdg daname new_dgname

 DESCRIPTION
      The vximportdg utility performs a temporary import of the disk group
      contained on the disk device specified by daname to the disk group
      specified by new_dgname.	As the persistent disk group information is
      not changed within the private partition of the affected disk, the
      import is only valid for the duration of the bootload or until a vxdg
      deport is performed.

 ARGUMENTS
      daname	Specifies the device name (disk access name) of one of the
		member disks of the disk group to be imported. The other
		members are imported automatically.

      new_dgname
		Specifies the disk group to be imported.

 USAGE
      One reason to use the vximportdg utility is to import a second
      generation of the rootdg disk group so that its objects are available
      for use while a system is running on a different rootdg.	To prevent
      volumes on the second generation rootdg from having the same device
      minor numbers as volumes (such as rootvol) on the active rootdg, the
      importation assigns temporary non-conflicting device minor numbers.
      If this occurs, vximportdg outputs warning messages detailing the
      mapping of the minor numbers.
