Problem with vgimport on alternate node

I only extended the fs in vgP01_04 on primary node, as free extents were available,

and then created the vg map file and then copied to alternate node.

while importing it on alternate node i got the following error:

htrxc1:/root> vgimport -v -s -m /tmp/vgP01_04.map vgP01_04
Beginning the import process on Volume Group "vgP01_04".
Couldn't access the list of physical volumes
for volume group "/dev/vgP01_04".

Please help me to resolve this out.

Thankx in advance.

Re: Problem with vgimport on alternate node

Hi,

first thing: do you see the shared disk also on the second node?
Check by ioscan (consider that it could not be seen with the same path along both systems).

HTH.

Best regards,

Re: Problem with vgimport on alternate node

Hi Arun,

you have to do the vgimport in the following scenario adding/removing viceversa
1) if u are adding the disk in vg
2) if u are craeting the new LV
3) if u r adding new vg
