Re: LVM: /stand/rootconf is corrupted

Man pages for lvlnboot shows the below, It is best idea to have a regular tape/net ignite backup of the systems so that these situations are avoided.

-c This command updates the /stand/rootconf file with the location of
the root volume in the currently booted volume group.
The /stand/rootconf file is used during maintenance-mode boots to
locate the root volume.
During normal boots (versus maintenance-mode boots, see hpux(1M) for
PA-RISC systems), this command is automatically executed by
/sbin/ioinitrc (see inittab (4)).
Since this command is performed during boot, it does not need to be performed
manually unless /stand/rootconf is missing (or alternatively,
performing a normal reboot will recreate this file).
