Vxvm error

Hi Friends,

I have removed a disk from the rootdg but still the entry is shown in the down as "was removed". How can I permanently remove this entry.

The entry is mapped some where because of this I am facing problems in mirroring after replacing the failed "sda" (Root disk).

I feel its is because I did not remove the sub disks from it, but still If any one can throw some lights on me????


[root@vmnode2 ~]# vxdisk list
DEVICE TYPE DISK GROUP STATUS
sda auto:sliced rootdisk1 rootdg online
sdd auto:sliced rootmirror rootdg online
- - rootdisk rootdg removed was:sda

Thanks

Re: Vxvm error

How did u remove the disk? r u sure if sda is a combination of sub disks?

As far as i know vxdisk list shows each individual disk at the host level.

Re: Vxvm error

Hi Adithyan,

I would run vxdiskadm options 4 and 5.

4 Remove a disk for replacement
5 Replace a failed or removed disk

Maybe option 5 is enough.
