0516-335 message: 15 char limit in LV names


Env:    AIX 3.2.5.

Desc:   Customer tried to create a logical volume with more than 15
        characters in its name; get message:

0516-335 getlvname: Warning, name has been truncated to 15 characters.

Action: The limit on the size of a logical volume name in AIX is 15
        characters.  A logical volume name must be unique throughout
        the system, must be from 1-15 characters, and cannot begin with
        a prefix already defined for other devices in the PdDv class of
        the Device Configuration Database.  For instance, a logical
        volume cannot be named hdisk99 or rmt7.  It CAN be named hdiska
        or rmta.

        These naming rules exist for both AIX 3.2 and 4.1.

Next:   Close.
