Re: rp3410 disk failure

Judging from the ioscan output, I would say you have 2 dead disks.

What happens if you run 'diskinfo' against the 2 disks that show "NO_HW"?

diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c5t0d0
diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c5t4d0

Re: rp3410 disk failure

In the IOSCAN output 2 disk shows NO_HW.

disk 4 0/4/1/1.0.0 sdisk NO_HW DEVICE HP 36.4GST336754LC

disk 6 0/4/1/1.4.0 sdisk NO_HW DEVICE HP 36.4GST336754LC

please do an ioscan -fnH and see the disk

Then do a diskinfo as updated by Patrick.

I see two bad disks. And I can't understand why vgdisplay still reports /dev/dsk/c5t0d0 as available...
