Re: lvextend error

Seems that you have error in HDD.
check with this command

#lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol8 | grep stale

and also refer this thread.

Re: lvextend error

Shalom, the target disk is either offline or has bad sectors.

Check /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log for lbolt errors and either use another disk for the mirror or conduct repairs.

Re: lvextend error

You need how many no:of copies?( -m 1 or 2 ?)
#vgdisplay -v vg00 | grep -i stale
check for stale PEs.
Also #vgdisplay -v vg00
Check that the hard disks are 'available'.
