make_recovery errors

When I attempt to run a make_recovery - i am receiveing the following error:

./make_recovery
/opt/ignite/lbin/list_expander -d -v
/opt/ignite/lbin/list_expander -d
/opt/ignite/lbin/list_expander -d
"/opt/ignite/bin/save_config" -f "/var/opt/ignite/recovery/config.recover" "/dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/usrvol" "/dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/standvol" "/dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/rootvol" >> "/var/opt/ignite/logs/makrec.log1" 2>&1
save_config: error - no disk device at /dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/usrvol

Running HPUX 11.11.

Re: make_recovery errors

Hello JV.
If I remeber correctly make_recovery is no longer supported, you should run make_tape_recovery instead.

if your tape hardware address is /dev/rmt/0m

# make_tape_recovery -Av

Re: make_recovery errors

I forgot to ask, what version of ignite are you using. ?

Re: make_recovery errors

I suspect your issue is similar to this one...its not an ignite error but an LVM issue.

Re: make_recovery errors

I agree with Fabain...

Please upgrade make_tape_recovery, you will be able to get better support from HP and it works very well.


zero points for this post please.

Re: make_recovery errors

Does not sound like a LVM problem, because there is no LVM in play ...

This is VxVM. Unforunately I'm not familiar with this.

How about your ignite version?

Hope this helps!

Re: make_recovery errors

Hello. First of all the error messages is telling you the problem. There doesn't appear to be a disk device associated with
/dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/usrvol

save_config: error - no disk device at /dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/usrvol

There must have been a usrvol at one time on this box. To see what you have defined in vxvm do the following:

vxprint -g rootdg

You will probably not see a usrvol defined. If you do make sure that the disk device(s) are "active".

I suspect that there is a directory entry in /dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/ (also /dev/vx/rdsk/rootdg/ for usrvol but the vxprint -g rootdg doesn't show one defined. You sure don't have it mounted in the bdf output that I could find.

If you see the directory entry but vxprint doesn't list it as an active or disabled Plex then I would move or delete the files /dev/vx/dsk/rootdg/usrvol and /dev/vx/rdsk/rootdg/usrvol

Then re-run your make_tape_recovery command.
If it has wheels or a skirt, you can't afford it.

Re: make_recovery errors

I attempted to use make_tape_recovery - now I get this error

save_config: error - unknown disk type for /dev/dsk/-, not SCSI or HPFL

I noticed /dev/dsk/- is my mirror disk that is down and disabled.

In? dsk/vg name minor# Associated disks/mountpoints
2 x /dev/vx/dsk/rootdg N/A /dev/dsk/c3t6d0 /dev/dsk/-


I checked and my mirror disk is disabled. Is there a way to make the make recovery just point to the primary disk and not even look at the mirror.

Re: make_recovery errors

One thing also - usrvol does exist

Mirror plex is down. I think my problem is the mirror disk itself. Is there a work around until I get this mirror disk replaced
