Hi Team, 

 

I am having ia64 hp server rx6600 server and while extending the VG it is showing me below error. 


#vgextend /dev/vg08 /dev/dsk/c23t0d1
vgextend: SIOC_INQUIRY: No such device or address
Verification of unique LVM disk id on each disk in the volume group
/dev/vg08 failed.

#diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c23t0d1
SCSI describe of /dev/rdsk/c23t0d1:

Re: vgextend: SIOC_INQUIRY: No such device or address

Based on the error, The issue seems to be with disks present in vg08.

You need to verify whether all disks belonging to vg08 are intact before extending the VG.

You can use following commands to verify disks belonging to VG:

# strings /etc/lvmtab  ## If Volume group version 2.X is used, replace lvmtab with lvmtab_p.

Check disk names listed under /dev/vg08. 

Check current status of the VG and its disks with command:

# vgdisplay -v vg08

You can compare the output with disks listed under first command output.

If you find any issues with disks, address them first and extend the Volume Group again.
