HP UX 11.31 Quorum not present, or some physical volume(s) are missing

Hi,

I have upgraded HP UNIX 11iv2 to HP UNIX 11iv3.

After that i am not able to mount the application data which is on the second VG in the server called vgtest.

#vgchange -a y vgtest
vgchange: Warning: Couldn't attach to the volume group physical volume "/dev/dsk/c2t3d0":
Illegal byte sequence
vgchange: Couldn't activate volume group "vgtest":
Quorum not present, or some physical volume(s) are missing.

vgchange: Warning: couldn't query physical volume "/dev/dsk/c2t3d0":
The specified path does not correspond to physical volume attached to
this volume group
vgchange: Warning: couldn't query the list of physical volumes.

Hi

Please run the command

#ioscan -fnC disk

Because the output still shows the disk CLAIMED.

avoid switch "u"

Re: HP UX 11.31 Quorum not present, or some physical volume(s) are missing

the "Illegal byte sequence" message worries me.

What does "diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c2t3d0"
return ?

Hi,

Can you please run

diskinfo also?

Re: HP UX 11.31 Quorum not present, or some physical volume(s) are missing

How about "vgscan -p"

It looks like the disk is good but the LVM info is bad/missing...

Did you reconfigure the internal raid config on this device ?
