Re: How to change mirrored root disk

How to replace a failed LSM mirrored system disk :

Solution :

1.) List the LSM configuration
# volprint -Aht

1.) Disassociate ALL plexes linked to the failed disk
e.g.
assume disk rz2 failed
# volplex -o rm dis rootvol-02
# volplex -o rm dis swapvol-02
# volplex -o rm dis usrvol-02
...

2.) Remove the failed disks from the disk group
# voldg -k rmdisk rz2a rz2b rz2g
# voldisk rm rz2a rz2b rz2g

3.) now physically replace the disk rz2

4.) Write a disklabel onto the new disk (e.g. for a rz28 disk type)
# disklabel -rw rz2 rz28

5.) Add the disk to LSM again
# voldiskadd rz2

6.) Mirror the system disk again
# volrootmir -a rz2

Re: How to change mirrored root disk

so must use the controller specific tool (e.g. RCU depend on the mylex modell) to reconfigure the raidset. Have a look into your manual of the controller howto run the controller tool and how to replace a drive.
