Re: Disk issue with dump lv

Seems to be your root disk is mirrored, you can follow the same procedure as replacing alternate root disk. And then re-mirror.

- Also what is the output of:
# pvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/c2t6d0 | grep " LV Name"

Check this out:

Re: Disk issue with dump lv

This dump lv is not mirrored.
"Mirror copies 0"
ihave prepared one plan, please correct if any mistake
# pvchange -a n /dev/dsk/c2t6d0
Replace the disk
# ioscan -fnC disk
# ioscan -funH 1/0/2/1/0/4/0.6.0
# insf -eC disk
# diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c2t6d0
# vgcfgrestore -n vg00 /dev/rdsk/c2t6d0
#lvlnboot -d /dev/vg00/lvol16 /dev/vg00
# vgchange -a y vg00
#vgdisplay -v vg00
#lvlnboot -v

Re: Disk issue with dump lv

Very standard procedure that I use ;
After Replacement of the disk
# ioscan -fnC disk
# pvchange -a n /dev/dsk/c2t6d0
# pvdisplay /dev/dsk/c2t6d0
if fails;
# vgcfgrestore -n /dev/vg00 /dev/rdsk/c2t6d0
# vgchange -a y /dev/vg00
# pvchange -a n /dev/dsk/c2t6d0

# diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c2t6d0
