1. Check available disks using: ioscan -fnCdisk
 2. Size can be checked using: diskinfo -v /dev/rdsk/device
 3. pvcreate -f /dev/rdsk/device
 4. mkdir /dev/vg_name
 5. cd /dev/vg_name ; mknod group c 64 0x0n0000 (where  is the next number
    avaiable incrementaly. i.e. for vg00 n is 0 so for vg01 n would be 1)
 6. vgcreate /dev/vg_name /dev/dsk/device /dev/dsk/device2 etc ...
 7. lvcreate -L size -n name /dev/vg_name
 8. newfs -F vxfs /dev/vg_name/rname (or -F hfs for hfs type filesystem)
 9. mkdir /mount_point
10. edit /etc/fstab to include new filesystem
11. mount -a to mount filesystem

Note:For swap, do not run newfs command. Option -C y and -r n should be used with the lvcreate command.
