vxvmconvert failure

Hi Friends,
hpux11iv1.VXVM 3.5
vxvmconvert analysis succeeds, but conversion fails. with following errors.

noticed that process status "vxconfigd -m enable" changes to "vxconfigd -k -r reset -m disable" and then to "vxconfigd -k" by the time vxvmconvert ends with failure.

please help me understand what is happening?
do VXVM logs anything useful anywhere ? how to resolve this ?

Re: vxvmconvert failure

Hi,

It looks vxconfigd deamon is not running.

Make sure full bundle version of VxVM is installed on your server.

Then run this command to start the vxconfigd daemon if it is not running

#vxconfigd -m enable
Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Re: vxvmconvert failure

vxconfigd was running and died.
when vxvmconvert was converting...

noticed that process status "vxconfigd -m enable" changes to "vxconfigd -k -r reset -m disable" and then to "vxconfigd -k" by the time vxvmconvert ends with failure.

Re: vxvmconvert failure

You need to make sure VXVM is running properly patched before trying this. IT looks like ot may have ran but you cannot activate it with VXVM.
