Problems mirroring with VERITAS Volume Manager 4.1

OS:          HP-UX 11.23
MODEL:       Superdome
APPLICATION: Veritas Volume Manager 4.1

 

PROBLEM:
I have to use what I have and pulled an "available" disk off  the shelf.  I have looked around and every step I take results in another search, fun.  I am trying to replace a mirrored root disk and get the message below.  I attached it as a RTF for better readability.  Thanks in advance for your comments.:
