Lvlnboot not initializing a PV in a AutoRaid bootup


Lvlnboot not initializing a PV in a AutoRaid bootup

Hi all

We got the following setup -
HPUX 11.0 , 12 disk Auroraid array with dual controllers.
Had a problem with one controller on Autoraid which was then unplugged and all VG's reduced to a single controller path.(including VG00).
After fixing the controller it was re-plugged into Autoraid and system booted up ok, and all VG's extended to 2nd controller path.
System has been rebooted numerous times - all ok but get error message on bootup while initializing vg00 - cannot initialize the boot PV which was pointing to the failed controller.
lvlnboot -v lists only one PV ( should be 2 - primary and alternative devices).
Could vgreduce have altered the boot config on the DISK ARRAY. Any suggestions how the boot VG can have both paths in its configuration.

The data is on the disk itself in an area known as the PVRA.

If you do a vgreduce you will modify this info.

It works for me (tm)
