Re: vgscan error

Looks like you have replaced a few disk drives on this system.

/dev/dsk/c0t6d0s2 and /dev/dsk/c4t8d0 devices are brand-spanking new and do not have anything in their VGID regions. You need to either create a new VG using these disks or extend a vg by adding these volumes. Remember to use pvcreate /dev/rdsk/cXtXdX first.

/dev/dsk/c3t6d0 and /dev/dsk/c4t10d0 were used previously under LVM. If your purpose is to use them as new disks, user pvcreate -f to obliterate the old info and re-initialize them for your LVM use. Otherwise, if you want to keep the contents, use vgimport to import them into your LVM structure

/dev/dsk/c1t2d0 and /dev/dsk/c6t1d0 are the two disks you have replaced and they are no longer available on this system. If this is not the case, you have some hardware problem as well.

Re: vgscan error

Shalom,

Make sure new disks have had pvcreate run on them.

cd /etc
mv lvmtab lvmtab.old

vgscan -av

This might help.
