When_Good_Disks_Go Bad

Basically I have a non mirrored disk in a not root volumn group that has crashed and need replaced. I was planning on following the process on page 27 and 28 for disk replacemtn within the document mentioned above.

# shutdown –h
#
#
I insert here vpcreate -f /dev/rdsk/c2t2d0
# vgcfgrestore –n vg01 /dev/rdsk/c2t2d0
# vgchange –a y vg01 27
# newfs [options] /dev/vg01/rlvol1
# mount /dev/vg01/lvol1 /app
#

The one I have on page 28 (above) says

newfs [options] /dev/vg01/rlvol1

but the example from man on newfs looks like

newfs /dev/rdsk/c1t0d2

aanyone have a current link to what was

Hi Charles:

Yes, one has to love how the documentation has been made so difficult to find :-)

http://bizsupport.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01911837/c01911837.pdf

Go to core HP-UX -> HP11i...LVM -> Search for "Bad"

Charles,

I recently asked the same question:

http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1451355

I think you'll find an answer in there.

Good luck!

Re: When_Good_Disks_Go Bad

HI (again) Charles:

As for the difference between:

# newfs [options] /dev/vg01/rlvol1

# newfs /dev/rdsk/c1t0d2

The first example performs a 'newfs' (file system creation) on a raw logical volume of an LVM volume group.

The second example builds a file system on a whole disk.

Regards!

Probably just a typo, but it should be 'pvcreate'.

You want to make the file system on whatever device you will mount. In your case, you definitely need to create it on the LV.

The example from the man page is assuming you are just going to be mounting a disk directly and not using the disk within LVM.
