NAME

  volunroot - Remove Logical Storage Manager hooks for rootable	volumes

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/volunroot [-a  | -A]

OPTIONS

  -a  Specifies	that all volumes on the	system disk be converted back to UNIX
      disk partitions, not just	the root and swap volumes, rootvol and swap-
      vol.

  -A  Forces removal of	the private region unless it is	the last one in	the
      system.

DESCRIPTION

  The volunroot	script restores	the accessibility of the root, swap, and
  other	file systems on	the boot disk directly through disk partitions
  instead of through volume devices. The script	also removes other changes
  that were made to enable booting of the system from the root volume, so
  that the system will boot with no dependency on the Logical Storage
  Manager.

  When used with no options, volunroot affects only the	root and swap
  volumes, rootvol and swapvol.

RESTRICTIONS

  The volunroot	command	is not supported in a cluster.

  For volunroot	to work	properly, only one plex	must exist for each of the
  affected volumes. This plex must be the one created by volrootmir or the
  original plex	created	when the root disk was encapsulated. This ensures
  that the underlying subdisks will have equivalent partitions defined for
  them on the disk.

  If these conditions are not met, the volunroot operation fails and none of
  the volumes are converted to disk partitions.

  The unwanted plexes can be removed using either voledit or volplex.
