Hello
I have a lot of warning messages on syslog.log
This is the warning:

vmunix: WARNING: VxVM vxio V-5-0-23 Open on an spurious volume device (0x68009470) encountered. This device may be valid, but has not
yet been configured in the kernel

My system configuration
OS HP-UX 11.23 Ia 64 Bit
Patch Dec2008
SG Ext For RAC 11.18
All disks are managed with lvm.

Re: Warning messages at syslog" vmunix: WARNING: VxVM vxio V-5-0-23"

hello,
this server using as NIS client?
we have similar thread which resolve through below steps,


Thanks lot for support.
I found the issue and fixed now. Done following >>>>
# /sbin/init.d/nfs.server stop
# /sbin/init.d/autofs stop
# /sbin/init.d/nfs.client stop
# /sbin/init.d/lockmgr stop
# /sbin/init.d/nfs.core stop

Then rebuild your /stand/ioconfig file by issuing the command:

# insf -e

Then see if you can get all the RPC daemons to start normally:

# /sbin/init.d/nfs.core start
# /sbin/init.d/lockmgr start
# /sbin/init.d/nfs.client start
# /sbin/init.d/autofs start
# /sbin/init.d/nfs.server start
#/sbin/init.d/nis.client start

also please go through thread here, thanks,

Hi avizen9
No I don't use NIS on my server, more all rpc nfs services are closed for safety motives.
Thanks

Hi,
Looks at the releases notes
http://docs.hp.com/en/5991-6386/5991-6386.pdf
the workaround is known ;)
"This message can be ignored. Once the disk group has been imported successfully, there
should be no problem in accessing its volumes."

Hi Smatodor
I have read the release notes, however I don't understand why the doc write this:
"A message such as the following is displayed if an attempt is made to open a volume at boot
time before any disk group has been imported"

On my server there are no dg veritas.
I excecute "vxdg list" the output it's null.
But Veritas Volume manager it's installed,could be this the problem?

Thanks

If possible try to recompile you Kernel and reboot using new kernal. That should fix the problem.

The system has made reboot 23/04.
I don't think it's the true solution.

Older thread - but same message.

 

Saw it at boot, but it is spewing to my syslog.log every 20 minutes...

 

I'm not running any VxVM....
