vgcfgrestore confirmation

Hi Admin ,
Iam getting little scared in doing some steps as this is my production system and needing your confirmation .

My vg00 mirror disk is not showing in /etc/lvmtab and the mirror extents are in stale state for all lv's.

However my /etc/lvmconf/vg00.conf.old file show the mirror disk as part of vg00 .

can i do like this while system is running .

- rename my vg00.conf.old vg00.conf
- pvcreate /dev/rdsk/c1t5d0
- vgcfgrestore -n /dev/vg00 /dev/dsk/c1t5d0
- /dev/vgsync /dev/vg00

or something else ??

pls. help

Hi Tom:

Try this first!

# ioscan -fnC disk #...make sure you can see the disk...
# vgsync /dev/vg00

Re: vgcfgrestore confirmation

if you can see disks from ioscan , addition steps is verify disk by
#diskinfo /dev/rdsk/....

does it report correct model and size.
if not , you got disk hardware problem , try to fix HW first.
enjoy any little thing in my life
