Re: The specified path does not correspond to physical volume attached to volume group

Hi
This shows there are two disks in your root vg & one of them is not responding i.e. (dev/disk/disk9_p2)There could a disk failure. in rx6600 SAS disks are installed.
Just check for ioscan -fnC disk confirm that all the disks are showing claimed. you can map the path (/dev/dsk/cxtxdx) using ioscan -m dsf command. Incase of disk failure please call up HP for replacing the disk.

Regards.

Thanks for responding....

I would like to remove /dev/disk/disk9_p2 disk permanently. Please let me know how can I do the same so that it should not appear in the /etc/lvmtab and vgdisplay output.

Thanks

>>I would like to remove /dev/disk/disk9_p2 disk permanently<<

why , have you read the "Good disk gone bad" .pdf and fix it ?

/dev/disk/disk9_p2 --> seems to be boot disk which i mentioned earlier,

Re: The specified path does not correspond to physical volume attached to volume group

Thanks Johnson,

The link says "Document missing or moved"

As per below mentioned above, I think the boot disk is mirrored. Can I remove the faulty one (/dev/disk/disk9_p2)?

Thanks

Gaby

>>process in the pdf but no luck..<<

what does it mean, can you shed me some light ?

what error did you received ?

removing that disk, you will lose (1 disk from your vg00 operating disk, better do under single user mode,

do you have another disk bootable "/dev/disk/disk14_p2"

Any recent changes? Disk replaced?

What the status of the disk now?


# sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd0 -q raid

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
