the errors are like this

vmunix: SCSI: Write error -- dev: b 31 0x011002, errno: 126, resid: 8192

vmunix: LVM: Failed to automatically resync PV 1f011002 error: 5

vmunix: SCSI: Read error -- dev: b 31 0x011002, errno: 126, resid: 1024

Re: error in syslog file

Hi,
Looks like a disk problem.To get what disk it is do ll /dev/dsk/* | grep 0x011002.

dd if=/dev/dsk/cxtxdx of=/dev/null bs=4k
Check if it returns any error.
If there is any error then you need to log a H/W case with the vendor.

If this is a SCSI disk the you need to check the following also.

SCSI termination may be loose.
may be SCSI data cable problem.

If this disk is a part of an external storage device , worst case it cud be a problem with the slot of the stoarage device too.

Please don't forget to assign points.

Re: error in syslog file

you did a mistake

#ll /dev/dsk/* | grep 0x11002 --incorrect
it should be 0x011002


so fire this just copy paste
#ll /dev/dsk/* | grep 0x011002

Re: error in syslog file

May be you dont have the priviledge as you are not root user.what you can do provide the ctd no (c1t1d0s2) to Unix System Administrater, tell then to check this.They will able to issue the command.
If the dd command shows error then contact vendor.

Please assign points remember, this forum is supported by people DONATING their time and energies into solutions for you.you can assign points from 0-10 what ever you want

Re: error in syslog file

Itâ s a h/w error ..Anytime can be happen..so when you will fire ioscan it should be good if it shows CLAIMED, if it shows no_hardware then you need to check.
Next from dd command o/p if it says input o/p error that means you have problem with the disk... then you need to log a case with vendor ...may be they will replace the disk. ALL of these not your task. This should be done by unix admin.as a DBA max. you can give them the CTD no (which u hv now).Even if you donâ t give them the ctd no then also they will able to find it from syslog...So don't waste ur time give me ctd no to them they will take necessary actions.

Re: error in syslog file

From the previous commands, we know that "dev: b 31 0x011002" refers to /dev/dsk/c1t1d0s2.

Now, the only reason for a modern HP-UX disk to have "s2" at the end of the device name is when it is a system disk in an Itanium system.

> vmunix: LVM: Failed to automatically resync PV 1f011002 error: 5

This also refers to /dev/dsk/c1t1d0s2: 1f in hexadecimal = 31 in decimal.

Your system disk appears to have been mirrored, and this message indicates one of the mirror halves is not healthy.

If your database is not installed on vg00, the disk failure does not threaten your database directly... but unless the failed disk is replaced, the system will crash if the second half of the mirrored system disk fails too. And a system crash *would* threaten your database along with the rest of the system.

hi


brw-r----- 1 bin sys 31 0x011002 Jun 28 2007 /dev/dsk/c1t1d0s2

===============================




execute

# ll /dev/*/group

and identify its particular vg . and do a vgdisplay -v vgname and check for current pv and open pv.

better talk to ur unix admin he might be giving some useful tips to u
