 Minor Numbers and importvg
When importing a volume group from one host to
another is the minor number of each logical
volume in the vg ALWAYS the same on the new host
as on the old.

** good question.  I'm going to GUESS yes. The volume group bozovg is
represented in /dev as  /dev/bozovg  n,0 where n is unique and is 10 for rootvg.
The logical volumes have lvid which are the vgid.# where # is unique and usually
assigned as the lv is created.  That gives you
/dev/lvn  n,1
/dev/lvm  n,2
/dev/lvo  n,3

so I can't imagine why the minor number would change.
