Re: Curr & Act PV variation

Looks like you have a dead/missing disk.

Run "ioscan -fnC disk" and look for the c1t6d0 device. If it doesn't show up, or if it shows up as "NO_HW", then you need to get it replaced.
Remember, wherever you go, there you are...

Re: Curr & Act PV variation

Hi,

There is no disk with device name c1t6d0 on the system. How this entry can be removed.

Thanks

Re: Curr & Act PV variation

Make a copy of your e/tc/lvmtab file then move it . Then try
#vgscan -v
Do a man on vgscan .

If that does not work try
# vgreduce -f /dev/vg_name
This will force the mising PV to be deleted from the configs .

Do man vgreduce for more information .
