Ignite failure on HP-UX 11.23 PA-RISC server

Hello all.

We've been running the following command on all of our HP-UX 11.23 PA-RISC servers for years.


/opt/ignite/bin/make_net_recovery -v -n 3 -u -s mkeadm02 -x inc_entire=vg00 -x exclude=/net -x exclude=/cdrom -P s >> /var/adm/log/ignite.log


We do this on a monthly basis. It runs out of cron.

As I said, we've been doing it this way for years.

Today however, one of our HP-UX 11.23 PA-RISC servers generated the following message and the make_net_recovery was unsuccessful.


ERROR:   group_name:DESCRIBE_GROUP: "group_name" attribute not found.
save_config: Error - get_system_info failed to get VxVM disk group information from smapi listener.

=======  07/03/13 12:08:12 CDT  make_net_recovery completed unsuccessfully



We've tried to re-run it on this server but it keeps generating the same message.

The make_net_recovery ran fine last month on this server.

No recent changes were done to this server as far as patching.

It was last patched in March of this year.

Anyone know what this "group_name attribute not found" refers too?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


BTW, this same make_net_recovery command runs fine on all the other HP-UX 11.23 PA-RISC servers in our environment. Only this one server is having the problem.


Thanks in advanced for any assistance.
