lvmtab shows:

 

/dev/vg00
/dev/dsk/c5t8d0
/dev/dsk/c5t10d0

 

I also attach an ioscan -fnCdisk

 

Any ideas?

 

Regards

Re: vgdisplay shows no physical volumes and lvdisplay -v shows current extents but PV1 & PV2 sho

You need to check, it looks like you can't see the devices listed for vg00 on lvmtab anymore:

 

/dev/dsk/c5t8d0
/dev/dsk/c5t10d0

 

Get the output of:

 

uname -a

ioscan -fnkC disk

ls -l /dev/dsk/*

setboot

ioscan -m dsf

 

also check the modification date of /etc/lvmtab

 

ls -l /etc/lvmtab*

Windows?, no thanks

Hi All

 

This is a test server so I took the action of rebooting and see the oucome.  Everything was OK after the reboot.

 

Thanks for your contributions.
