vg00 not available in /etc/lvmtab


vg00 not available in /etc/lvmtab

HI All,

This is what is my problem. bdf output shows all the vg00 filesystems mounted but the lvmtab file is not having the information for vg00.

I already tried vgscan and vgimport, and recreated lvmtab file, which didnt work.

btprod@DIC:/ # bdf
Filesystem kbytes used avail %used Mounted on
/dev/vg00/lvol3 8192000 160912 7968376 2% /

This is HP-UX 11.11 server

Kindly let me know if any further details are required.

Thanks in Advance,

Re: vg00 not available in /etc/lvmtab

You can try one of these:

- move lvmtab file away and run vgscan

- boot into maintenance mode and vgimport vg00

...which didnt work. ...

is not really helpful.

Hope this helps!

Re: vg00 not available in /etc/lvmtab

make sure you rename it first.. It may not add vg00 to the file if it still exists.
