turn of polling on disk level

I am not able to turn off polling anf i have the current lvm cumulative and commands patch

Any idea what is is error

pvchange -p n /dev/dsk/cxtydz
pvchange: Physical volume "/dev/dsk/cxtydz" could not be changed:
This may indicate that the kernel installed on this system lacks the
neccessary functionality to perform this operation.

Re: turn of polling on disk level

Hello,

Do you have patch PHCO_35524 on the production
server? pvchange command was modified to
add a new option (-p) to enable or disable
LVM's proactive polling behavior of alternate
paths.

Also, pvdisplay command was changed to report
the proactive polling status along with other
information about the physical volume.

Cheers,
