Re: vg not activated restarting the server.

Hi,

Could you check if the parameter AUTO_VG_ACTIVATE is set to 1 in /etc/lvmrc?

Re: vg not activated restarting the server.

in think
setting AUTO_VG_ACTIVATE=1 in /etc/lvmrc and adding entry in /etc/fstab should be enough

Re: vg not activated restarting the server.

try adding enttry under custom_vg_activation. Like the one u see for swap.

custom_vg_activation()
{
# e.g. /sbin/vgchange -a y -s
# parallel_vg_sync "/dev/vg00 /dev/vg01"
# parallel_vg_sync "/dev/vg02 /dev/vg03"

vgchange -a y /dev/vgswap
return 0

Above are the error messages from your rc.log.

What kind of disk array are you using? It seems like the disks are not available when bcheckr is run at boot time.

Re: vg not activated restarting the server.

Hi,

Pls can you check the permissions and the script /sbin/lvmrc
Also after you bootup, please check your console logs via MP console for the partition (on rp8400) you are booting, and check what it shows for the bcheckrc execution.

Regards,
Ninad

Re: vg not activated restarting the server.

hi,

first check if the lvmtab is including the vg01 and vg02
#strings /etc/lvmtab

Identify the device files of hard disks corresponding to each vg01 & vg02
#ioscan -nfC disk

third restore the structure of each disks:
#vgcfgrestore -n /dev/vg01 /dev/rdsk/cxtydz
#vgchange -a y /dev/vg01
#mount -a

I hope this can help.

Re: vg not activated restarting the server.

Hi,

Did you try do restore the lvm structure in the related disks:
#vgcfgrestore -n /dev/vg01 /dev/rdsk/c2t6d0
#vgcfgrestore -n /dev/vg02 /dev/rdsk/c4t6d0

At this stage if you can not restore you have to use the following but you need to recover the file within VG from a backup:

# pvcreate -f /dev/rdsk/c2t6d0
#vgcfgrestore -n /dev/vg01 /dev/rdsk/c2t6d0
#vgchange -a y /dev/vg01
# mount -a
and recover from the backup.

Do the same for the vg02

regards,

Re: vg not activated restarting the server.

I see that you have
AUTO_VG_ACTIVATE=1
turned on so in the /etc/lvmrc
so it is not needed to configer the vgchanges in the /etc/lvmrc file. I do not know it can harm but the servers we manage do not have the lines that in the custom_vg_activation (that are hashed of here)
For the rest the error looks like it just needs a vgrestore, but because you din't needed it to activate the vg, I sugest to remove the lines and to do a new (planned) reboot to see if the errors are gone...

custom_vg_activation()

{

# e.g. /sbin/vgchange -a y -s

# parallel_vg_sync "/dev/vg00 /dev/vg01"

# parallel_vg_sync "/dev/vg02 /dev/vg03"



#### /sbin/vgchange -a y /dev/vg01

#### /sbin/vgchange -a y /dev/vg02

#### /sbin/vgchange -a y /dev/vg03



#### parallel_vg_sync "/dev/vg01 /dev/vg02 /dev/vg03"



return 0

}
