How to add a Physical Volume in a VG already with information in HP-UX

Hi, i have a problem, in a Storage Migration with HP-UX server we make it at VGs Level with pvmove.

Somehow one of the disk lost his connection with his Volume Group. In that Physical Disk have the Physical extend of a Logical Volume lvpsapPCP that have a FS /usr/sap/PCP. Without that disk we cant up the services.

 

I tried to include again that disk with

 

vgextend /dev/vgPCP /dev/dsk/c11t0d1

 

but send this error

 

Couldn't open physical volume "/dev/rdsk/c21t0d2":
Verification of unique LVM disk id on each disk in the volume group
/dev/vgPCP failed.

Please help

 

Thanks!!

Hi,

 

Did you have map file of the VG, if so you can import the VG from the map file.

 

#vgimport -p -s -v -m <map file name> vg name  [Preview mode] if this successful then remove -p and proceed.
