AIX - mirror a jfs2log

Hi everybody,

I have a little problem with my AIX 6.1, PowerHA 6.1 LVM mirroring.

I accidentally created logical volume cpsabcd2lv with external jfs2log loglv00 in the same volume group cpsdata2vg. Then I mirrored LV cpsabcd2lv on the second LUN in VG cpsdata2vg. My journal is unmirrored and only on one LUN.

# lsvg cpsdata2vg
VOLUME GROUP:       cpsdata2vg               VG IDENTIFIER:  00fb518c00004c0000000169445f4c2c

 # lspv
hdisk36         00fb518c4457e71a                    cpsdata2vg      concurrent
hdisk37         00fb518c4457f895                    cpsdata2vg      concurrent

# lslv -l loglv00
PV                COPIES        IN BAND       DISTRIBUTION
hdisk36           001:000:000   100%          000:001:000:000:000

 # lsvg -l cpsdata2vg
LV NAME             TYPE       LPs     PPs     PVs  LV STATE      MOUNT POINT
cpsabcd2lv          jfs2       2850    5700    2    open/syncd    /cpsabcd2
loglv00             jfs2log    1       1       1    open/syncd    N/A

I know that I canĀ“t change external jfs2log to INLINE, but is there a smart way how to repair it/mirror it? Hdisk36 and hdisk37 are the same size and contain only VG cpsdata2vg.
What if I just add copy of the LV loglv00 to hdisk37? Will it add a copy behind the LV cpsabcd2lv or this overwrite LV cpsabcd2lv?

mklvcopy loglv00 2 hdisk37

Thank you for suggestions.
