LVol Cascade Failure - and drive corruption

Guys, have an FE on the way with a replacement drive to replace a suspect failed drive.

We have a 4SI Raid Card with 4 Drives as near as I can tell in the vg03.

I had one mounted file system on this LVOL, and now when I attempt to mount it, I get the following error..

# mount /restore
vxfs mount: /dev/vg03/restore is corrupted. needs checking

Apparently the LVOL failed consistency when we marked them back online.. any thoughts on what I need to do to recover this?
