MaxDB log volume reconfiguration - remove

Hello

Is it possible to remove logvolume - DISKL00x ?

We have one too many and really dont use them that much.

They do not make us any harm, but would rather have only two as before.

I found only a way to add new, no way to remove any.

    The documentation says you can:

    "You can delete data volumes to reduce the size of the data area.(...)The system distributes the data from the deleted data volume throughout the remaining data volumes"

    http://maxdb.sap.com/doc/7_7/af/90f54ecf7e4ac79fb157477db48902/content.htm

    I think you need to have DB in offline or admin state to do it.

    • Hi,

      The only way to achive this is to perform a backup, then then initialize the database for the restore.
      By doing initialize you can redefine the log area, afterwards you can restore the backup.

      Best regards,
