Answer / prasad
in vxvm control we can bring normal disk into 2 ways ,
those are initialization & encapsulation. when we bring the
disk through initialization , the data in the disk is
deleted or destroyed(that's why we can take new disk
through initialization) and coming to encapsulation , we
did encapsulation on a disk , the data in the disk is
preserved or stored a side , then we can write data on that
disk throug encapsulation.

Initialization : Initialization will formats the hard drive
and bring in vxvm control and every single slice will be

Encapsulation : It will brings the hard drive in to vxvm
control with out loosing the data and every single slice

Answer / ram
We can bring the disk in to vxvm control by 2 ways
The data in the disk destroyed and it makes entire disk as
a single volume
while bringing the disk into vxvm under encapsulation it
converts the slices into volumes.so each slice treated as a
volume.so it will preserve the data.this methodrecommended
for to bring the OS or data disk into vxvm control.

Answer / raja
in VXVM we can bring the data in two ways if it is new disk
we Initialize it or if the disk has data we Encapsulate it.
In solaris the data disk contains 7 slices then we
Encapsulate it in to the VXVM. It changed like every slice
in solaris as volumes.

Answer / satheesh
Actually we will encapsulate the root disk when converting
from SVM to VXVM. So that it will preserve the data.
Other disks we will initialise.
