Re: mirrored disk drive replacements
This is the problem:
In most cases the number of physical extends is set to fit the largest disk in the volume group at the time you created the VG.
You can check this with
vgdisplay -v vg00

For this reason you cannot include a larger disk later.
In HP-UX 11.31 and 11.23 (patched) you can adjust the maximum using vgmodify.

The workaround is a new installation (re-create vg00) - from scratch or from an ignite image.

Hope this helps!
