Dear Mr. Mauelshagen,

In the book "Oracle - Real Application Clusters" from Murali Vallath 
(ELSEVIER Digital Press, Feb. 2004) on S.292, the Author want to install 
He begin with the first steps:
(Begin in the Book)

Configuring raw devices into volume groups and logical volumes.

1. Create all necessary volume groups (VG) and logical volumes on the 
first node.
2. Deactive all VGs and export the structure of all the VGs to map files 
by issuing the following command. Remember only one map file per VG is 

vgexport -v -s -p -m /tmp/vg_system.map /dev/vg/system


I want to make the same steps, but now I have a problem, because the 
parameters -s, -p and -m are not available on SLES8 (also SuSE9.0). In 
your man-page are only the parameter:
-a -d -h and -v are include.

Now I have a question:
If there exits another vgexport-command with these other parameters (-s, 
-p and -m)?
If there exits another solution of the way from Mr. Vallath.

Many thanks forward for your help.

Your sincerely,
Ronald Laszlob
