disk adding through lvm

Hi dear(s)

Can u explain how to add a disk through lvm with commands.
I need to add a 9 gb scsi HS disk to a Hp D class 9000 server.
# 2  
1. ioscan -fnCdisk ## don't remember if there is a space between the C and disk
2. insf # to create the necessary special files (char and block device files)
3. pvcreate /dev/rdsk/cxtxdx

At this point, your disk is ready to be used in a volume group. You can either create a new volume group using the vgcreate command or you can add to an existing volume group using vgextend. For either command, you can look up the man page.

After you add the disk to a volume by creating/extending it, you can use lvcreate to create a new logical volume or lvextend to extend an existing logical volume. Again, look up the man page.
