Problem to mount file system

Hi,

After a reboot , some FS was not mounted.
I try to mount them and i have that message : "mount - Cannot open /dev/vg01/lvol3: No such device or address" for all the FS not mounted.

What can i do to resolve the problem ?

Thanks.

Re: Problem to mount file system

Hi,

please check if vg01 is active:

# vgdisplay -v vg01

Is there running MC/SG? If, then check /etc/lvmrc if vg01 should be mounted automaticly after reboot. If there is no MC/SG running then activate the volume group:

# vgchange -a y vg01
# mount -a

If no errors all filesystems in vg01 should be mounted now.

Re: Problem to mount file system

check /etc/lvmrc as whether it has entry for auto enabling vg01 after reboot.

just do a
#vgchange -a y vg01

Armin,

When i try do activate VG01 :

vgchange -a y vg01
vgchange: Warning: Couldn't attach to the volume group physical volume "/dev/dsk/c0t14d0":
The path of the physical volume refers to a device that does not
exist, or is not configured into the kernel.
vgchange: Warning: couldn't query physical volume "/dev/dsk/c0t15d0":
vgchange: Couldn't query the list of physical volumes.
vgchange: Couldn't activate volume group "vg01":
Quorum not present, or some physical volume(s) are missing.


I have this message for all disks of VG01.

thanks.

Re: Problem to mount file system

Hi,

it seams that the disks doesn't responce in the time LVM recommended it.

Please check if the disks are available:

# ioscan -fnCdisk

and grep for "/dev/dsk/c0t14d0" and "/dev/dsk/c0t15d0".

Please check also the timeout of the disks:

# pvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/c0t14d0 | grep -i timeout

# pvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/c0t15d0 | grep -i timeout

I know problems with disk in EMC where we have to increase the time. Perhaps you have to set it up to 180 (sec), see man 'pvchange'.

Re: Problem to mount file system

by any means did you change the SCSI id for any of the disks?

Please post the output of

#ioscan -fnC disk

#pvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/cxtydz
(for both the disks)

Also the output of /etc/lvmtab.

Re: Problem to mount file system

When i do an ( ioscan -fnC disk ) the devices c0t14d0 and c0t15d0 don't appears.
and when i do a pvdisplay it returns me this error, (it looks like disks do not exits) :

pvdisplay: Warning: couldn't query physical volume "/dev/dsk/c0t14d0":
The specified path does not correspond to physical volume attached to
this volume group
pvdisplay: Warning: couldn't query physical volume "/dev/dsk/c0t15d0":
The specified path does not correspond to physical volume attached to
this volume group
pvdisplay: Couldn't query the list of physical volumes.
pvdisplay: Couldn't retrieve the names of the physical volumes
belonging to volume group "/dev/vg01".
pvdisplay: Cannot display physical volume "/dev/dsk/c0t14d0".

Re: Problem to mount file system

Hi,

if a 'ioscan' didn't show the disk then it seams to be a hardware problem ;-(

Please open a harware case with your HP Responce Center.
