Re: DiskArray

Hello,

Try recreating /etc/lvmtab... vg01 is still recorded there for some reason.

1. Backup /etc/lvmtab
mv /etc/lvmtab /etc/lvmtab.old
2. Recreate it
vgscan -v

HTH,
Vince

Re: DiskArray

strings /etc/lvmtab

jsut to see what disk is configured to vg01

vgexport is very useful in cases where you really don't want that disk to be there.

the correct way in the future is
vgreduce vg01 (/dev/dsk/cxtydz)
until all /dev/dsks are removved.

vgremove vg01

rm -Rf /etc/lvmconf/vg01*

vgcfgbackup


It works for me (tm)
