Re: syslog error

do ioscan -fnC disk and check if all are in claimed state.
in vgdislay -v vg_name
check if all PV are there and intact.
#df -k

should give you output and should not hung.

check pvdisplay pv_name
and let us know TIme out value.

Re: syslog error

did you check the commands i asked earlier,

I suppose those are SAN disk in volume and most probably those LUNs are nto visible.

First basic thing is to run
ioscan -fnC disk

Re: syslog error

Are you using powerpath?
are these san devices?

from error it seems
--------------------
LVM: WARNING: VG 128 0x000000: LV 8: Some I/O requests to this LV are waiting indefinitely for an unavailable PV. These requests will be queued until the PV becomes available (or a timeout is specified for the LV).

--------------------
PV is getting unavailable and then getting back.

so requested are completing.
Need to check SAN,FC,multipath software.
Any other error in dmesg apart from this.

Re: syslog error

Hi,
May I know what is powerpath..here all are san devices.but how can i able to know which disk is having problem because all are showing claimed and vgdisplay also showing all vgs available..

Re: syslog error

powerpath is a multipathing software from EMC.

Do you have Storage team you can seek there help.

i think you need to see syslog.log file properly there should be some error messages for the LUNs availability.

Need more error message to dig more.

Re: syslog error

hi,

Is there any LUN was deleted in SAN. Because deleting LUNs in an HP StorageWorks Virtual Array (VA) may cause host I/O timeouts to occur.

Re: syslog error

Hi
ok - the message seems to refer to a VG thats unavailable ...so....

1. What discs belong to VG 128 0x003000 ?
2. what lv's belong to that VG ?
3. what does strings have to say about this?
4. when did the messaging start and what was
done to the system before?
5. a PV is unavailable ...where is this from..a SAN, JBOD etc ?

Re: syslog error
