Re: Logical Volume showing stale status

Hi,

One of your disk failed in vg00. Find out which disk failed and get it replaced.

#strings /etc/lvmtab -> will show disks part of vg00. if vg00 contains only two disks, the disk which failed is other than c3t0d0.

follow the steps in Ivan link to replace and remirror the root disk.

Best wishes,

Ganesh.

Hi

Check with following command

lvdisplay -v -k lvname

then you will get key of the stale disk (i.e 0 or 1 whatever).Using that key reduce it from the vg and follow the procedure as per above given pdf.
