Server does not boot

I have closed all the threads and opening a new one..

This is new Installation:-
There is no data apart from vg00:-

I have installend 11.31 on external disk
I have 11.23 on internal disk

Now I wanted to mirrior the external disk to the Internal...

I have done the below:-

# idisk -f /tmp/idf -w /dev/rdisk/disk6

# idisk -f /tmp/idf -w /dev/rdisk/disk8

#pvcreate -B /dev/rdisk/disk6_p2

#vgextend vg00 /dev/disk/disk6_p2

this gave an error

Couldn't open physical volume "/dev/rdisk/disk9_p2":
Verification of unique LVM disk id on each disk in the volume group
vg00 failed.

Then I rebooted the server... now it does not boot up...

now either I havee to bring the server up & running or

reinstall the oS... but to reinstall I do not have fs0 or fs1 or fs2... plz advise

Re: Server does not boot

putting an install DVD into the DVD on the server, and rebooting to the EFI prompt, interrupt that and it should shows a fs(x) as the DVD rom
Read the manuals, all explained in there.

Re: Server does not boot

yes, because it appears that you have corrupted the origional boot disks.
Start with the DVD and do a clean install.
Then read the manual pages on mirroring an Integrity server boot disk.
