Hi,

It looks like vg00 is mirrored and the second disk has a HW problem.
In any case try to boot as
hpux -lm

Hi Nedved,

It seems your HDD header information is damaged and you need to repair it. The OS doesnt recognize that disk as LVM. The next option is to restore from Ignite image.

Re: Hp-Ux rp3410 not booting

If the LVM subsystem detects that vital information is corrupted on the boot disk, it scans all the attached devices to try to find the physical volumes that are part of the root volume group.

Failure in attaching PV to the root volume group means...
The physical volume does not belong to the root volume group.

Check the following log:

/var/adm/syslog/syslog.log

Re: Hp-Ux rp3410 not booting

hi
As can be seen that one disk is not attaching to the root VG that means that the quorum of the root VG is not meeting so this is better that you can once trying to boot the system in the LVM maint Mode or in Quorum Override mode. or in a combination of both.

Interrupt the autoboot and inetract with IPL (Y) and do
ISL>hpux -lq
to boot in Quorum Override mode
ISL>hpux -lq -lm

this shall boot the system in the LVM Maint Mode Overriding the Quorum in the Root VG.

after that please post ioscan -fnCdisk
vgdisplay -v vg00
regards

Re: Hp-Ux rp3410 not booting

I boot up the server using

hpux -lq in the isl prompt and in the vgdisplay
output i found this

vgdisplay: Warning: couldn't query physical volume "/dev/dsk/c2t1d0":
The specified path does not correspond to physical volume attached to
this volume group
vgdisplay: Warning: couldn't query all of the physical volumes.


So i ordered for a disk to replace.

Can some one tell me what is the " hpux -lq "
switch done to boot up the server.

Re: Hp-Ux rp3410 not booting

Hi Nedved,

hpux -lq

Boot the system with quorum override option. This option is used in a scenario where a disk is removed from the system or is otherwise unavailable, but the corresponding entry for the physical volume has not yet been removed from the volume group using vgreduce.

Re: Hp-Ux rp3410 not booting

Plug the disk in and follow the LVM configuration steps to restore the config:

Hope this helps!

Re: Hp-Ux rp3410 not booting

Hi Nedved,

If the disks of vg00 is H/W RAID, the newly insert disk will automatically found. If S/W RAID configured, you may use the following commands:

# vgsync /dev/vg00
# lvsync /dev/vg00/(lvolname)

If possible, provide the following:

# ioscan -fnC disk
# vgdisplay -v /dev/vg00

Re: Hp-Ux rp3410 not booting

This disk is bad or did you already replace it?

It needs to be configured, see

http://docs.hp.com/en/5991-1236/When_Good_Disks_Go_Bad_WP.pdf

Hope this helps!
