NAME

  volevac - Evacuates all volumes from a disk

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/volevac [-g	diskgroup] medianame [new_medianame...]

DESCRIPTION

  The volevac script moves subdisks off	the specified Logical Storage Manager
  disk (medianame) to the specified destination	disks (new_medianame ...).
  Note that only those subdisks	that are associated with a volume are moved
  to the destination disk.

  Subdisks that	are part of unmirrored striped plexes are moved	by moving the
  entire plex to a new location.

  If new_medianame operands are	omitted, then any non-volatile,	non-reserved
  disks	can be used as destination disks.

  This operation presumes that sufficient space	exists elsewhere in the	disk
  group	for the	operation to complete. If the process runs out of space, some
  of the volumes on the	disk may not be	evacuated.

  This script is usually called	from the voldiskadm menus.
