Two disk bad on Raid array.

Hi
We have raid box. One disk has red light and one disk has no light. and all other disk has red flashing light. Disks are good because I replace the disk which has no light. System boots up ok without vg01 i.e raid.
Is it bad?

I can't do vgchange. I can see the disk when I do the ioscan. to rebuilding the file system is no problem but how? because pvcreate says can query physical /dev/dsk/????.

What hardware are you using? FC60? SAN?

Re: Two disk bad on Raid array.

Try a "vgdisplay -v vg01|more" you should see your disk as a primary or alternate link. Then run "lvdisplay -v /dev/vg01/lvol1 |grep ?"
substitute your logical volume using this disk that appears bad for lvol1. If there is a problem mounting or vgchanging the volume group you probably have some ????? where the name of the disk should be. In other words lost data for that logical volume/volume group.
just do it!
