procedure to replace a faulty hard disk

I have got a faulty internal hard disk in HP 9000/887/G50. It is not mirrored and it is not boot disk. Does any one can help me to figure out the correct procedure to replace this hard disk. Thanks.

Re: procedure to replace a faulty hard disk

Hi,

if you vg is not active
1. replace disk
2. run command:
vgcfgrestore -n vg_name pv_path
ex:
vgcfgrestore -n vg03 /dev/rdsk/c1t2d0
3. reactivate vg
vgchange -a y vg_name

4. restore you data
