Pid X killed due to text modification or page I/O error

Hello everybody,

I have a HP-UX B.11.11.
I had one disk and added one new.
When trying to configure the second disk Not Using the Logical Volume Manager(from SAM) I have the error in the subject: "Pid X killed due to text modification or page I/O error".
I tryed to add another partion on the first disk, but I ended with to same error. I managed to add another swap partition with success on the first disk.
I runed xstm on both disks to check them for harware failures but it seems that they are OK.
I saw also a strange message in system log: "Synchronous Page I/O error occurred while paging to/from disk".

Can anybody help me with this issue?
Thank you in advance!
Stefan

Re: Pid X killed due to text modification or page I/O error

This message usually occurs if the kernel notices that the in memory page doesn't match the disk image. This can happen if the executable is on NFS and on the server the file has been removed and recreated.

I suppose it can also happen with I/O errors?
