Re: alternet root disk replacement

Procedure is NOT correct.


There is no need to do lvreduce, but if done, there is nothing you can restore with vgcfgrestore.



You can do this replacement online!

Re: alternet root disk replacement

Ani,
Steps you mentioned are not correct.

Find the attached steps to replace faukty root disk
------------
1) Detach the indicated faulty physical volume

host # pvchange -a n /dev/dsk/c0t8d0

2) Check the status of the PV at /dev/dsk/c0t8d0

host # pvdisplaypvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/c0t8d0 |more

3) Once faulty disk is succsessfully detached. Insert new wroking disk ( may be it is done by HP CE) Perform consistancy check on newly inserted disk

host # dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t8d0 of=/dev/null bs=2048k

(.. should get o/p like as below )
205+0 records in
205+0 records out

4) Check the status of new PV at H/W path 4/0/1/0/0.8.0. Should be claimed state

host # ioscan -fnH4/0/1/0/0.8.0

host # diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0


host # pvcreate -f -B /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0

5) Install boot programs on newly added disk at /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0

host # mkboot /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0

6) Restore vg00 configuration on newly added disk

host # vgcfgrestore -n vg00 /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0

7) Install autoexecute file on new disk

host # mkboot -a "hpux -lq" /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0


8)
host # cd /usr/sbin/diag/lif

host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif $

host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # mkboot -b updatediaglif2 -p LABEL -p AUTO -p HPUX -p ISL /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0


host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # liflslifls /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0

host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # lifcp /dev/rdsk/c0t8d0:AUTO -


9) prepare LVM logical volume to be boot

host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # lvlnboot -R -v


10) Change the PV and VG to active state

host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # pvchange -a y /dev/dsk/c0t8d0

host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # vgchange -a y vg00

host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # vgsync vg00


11) Check error log

host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # dmesg


12) Verify PV

host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # pvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/c0t8d0 |more


13) Wait untill all LVs are synced properly


host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # vgdisplay -v vg00 |grep -i stale


host # /usr/sbin/diag/lif # vgdisplay -v vg00 |more


End of activiy
