Re: disk issue

Hi Rahul.

It seems that your disk is getting senced by system but system is not able to read this disk. Because of Disk failure.
You can still confirm this using dd command.

#dd if=/dev/dsk/c0t5d0 of=/dev/null bs=1024k

Can you check some errors in syslog.log file like lbolt error or some parity errors.

Thanks & Regards

Re: disk issue

vgbroot.>>

It would be better to post "vgdisplay " o/p, better that ..? did you activated VG .. ?

vgchange -a y /dev/vgbroot
vgdisplay -v /dev/vgbroot |more

Dear experts,
This is for ur purpose...
===========================

a1124158:root vgdisplay -v vgbroot
vgdisplay: Volume group not activated.
vgdisplay: Cannot display volume group "vgbroot".

a1124158:root vgchange -a y vgbroot

Re: disk issue

possible disk failure

# dmesg
# more /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
# cd /var/opt/resmon/log/
# more event.log
(from event.log check any message refering to disk problem "c0t5d0")

you try scanning them again.

# ioscan -fn

# insf -e

# ioscan -fnC disk

Re: disk issue

Hi Rahul,

If ioscan -fn, is not showing the disk, c0t5d0, at all, i.e. even not in "NO HW" state, then the disk was not "found" even at bootup of the system, when the iotree gets build.

So or there is a hardware problem "leading to the disk", scsi cable problem/diskproblem, or there is no disk with scsi id#5 anylonger physically in the storage.

In both cases, someone should get onsite to physically check it out...

Greetz,
Chris
