Re: Ignite error


Are you sure to have your system disk with this name "rootdg " and not as usually vg00 ?

try a bdf to control your mount point and if so change you volume group name for vg00.

If you're really not using logical volume manager try by replacing rootdg by the block device file of your disk.

Hope this help.

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgement.

Re: Ignite error

Hi Karthik,

Just for confirmation, Are you sure you have any vg called "rootdg"?. Normally this naming convention used to be vxvm.

Re: Ignite error

Normaly list_expander errors are beacuse of you have a bad entry in your /etc/fstab file, check out your fstab is consistent(all lvols exist, all mount points exist, etc ..)

You can manually launch list_expander and check the error:


also check with vgdisplay if your root vg is actually rootdg and you are using veritas

vgdisplay -v /dev/rootdg
Windows?, no thanks
