D3 AIX Restoring Logical Volumes

D3 AIX Restoring Logical Volumes

Can anyone tell me the secret to restoring a D3 system from an AIX Logical

I need to be able to restore a complete system on to another machine from
copies of the original which have been backed up using dd to copy the LV's
to tape. I've got a pretty good idea that I have the blocking parameters
right and I can restore the partitions. The problem is that when the system
runs I get some FCB0 errors when I try to execute a command. Has anyone any
idea what I've missed that's causing the FCB erros?

1. logical volumes/filesystems for db's on AIX

We are installing a large Oracle 7.3.4 implementation on AIX 4.3.  If we
have some tables that are going to be 5 - 10 gb in size, we're wondering
if it's more beneficial to configure 2-4 logical volumes so that we can
then mount the filesystems as multiple pieces?  Or is it better to
create one huge filesystem to accommodate the tables/groups of tables?
We plan to stripe data across disks and mirror the data in a HACMP
cascading configuration.

I appreciate any insights on this.  Please send any replies to me

don't miss them.
