I/o Error While Reading The Vgda

Here is what I did: Identify that corruption exists. If there are some problems, then reduce the mirror with lvreduce -m 0.HTH,Shiju Life is a promise, fulfill it! 0 Kudos Reply Ashish Tripathi Advisor Options Mark as New Bookmark Subscribe Subscribe to RSS Feed Highlight Print Email to a Friend Report Inappropriate Content ‎05-03-2002 08:39 AM ‎05-03-2002 08:39 AM Re: booting with alternate disk Thanks Shiju, Once I applied the PHKL_25778 patch,took out the primary boot disk and booted with the alternate,everything went fine.....Just wondering why this Patch is not integrated with the 11.11 Patch Bundle.Thanks to all who replied. After some research, we issued the command "vgcfgrestore -n /dev/vg00 /dev/rdsk/c1t2d0" but while activating still got the same error as on 4.7. HP engineer say that he can repair it, but all special utility for it was made for another release of microware.He upgrade microware to this release. this content

As your stm gives no error on disks, may be LVM info on your disk may be getting corrupted. A crash dump cannot be taken under these circumstances without special configuration. After running reiserfsck, we still had corruption of the Volume Group Descriptor Area (VGDA). have a peek at these guys This obviously is incorrect.

I mean can we understand if there was info corrupt on only one disk or on both?As soon as you wrote 'vgcfgrestore -n /dev/vg00 /dev/rdsk/c1t2d0' so I guess this disk had corrupt LVM structures. The HW group of HP will work on that, but, maybe, you have some worthful hints on these strange HW failures?'ioscan' all the time reports all HW in claimed status. 'diskinfo' also reports normal information on powerfailed disks (after the reboot).----At the moment, all works fine. check my blog We did the same command now for disk c2t2d0.8.

We also made note of the root device from our /etc/zipl.conf parameters="dasd=232b-232e,232a root=/dev/dasda1" which was UCB 232b. There's an expert tool to diag disks, but better use STM in hpux.As I already mentioned check files in /var/adm/crash and /var/adm/tombstones (recent file should be ts99).These all you can do by yourself.Eugeny Home page 0 Kudos Reply julio quadros Advisor Options Mark as New Bookmark Subscribe Subscribe to RSS Feed Highlight Print Email to a Friend Report Inappropriate Content ‎12-22-2002 08:45 PM ‎12-22-2002 08:45 PM Re: I/O error while reading the VGDA Hi EvguenyHELP HELP HELP It happened again today and once again i had to vgcfgrestore c2t2d0.Following your advice, i ran xstm and this is what i got:1)No errors on both disks2)"Diagnose" and "Expert tool" are not available3) /var/adm/crash has no crash dumps4) My machine has no /var/adm/tombstones.

Power fail msg can be corrected by increasing the IO time-out (seen by pvdisplay /dev/dsk/c#t#d#). Also check the SCSI termination on the bus. This is necessary because the recovery Linux does not contain any LVM commands and the VGDA backups are on your root file system anyway. More info are found in pvchange man pages.Generally, any HW failures can be predicted if you have a high nbr of IO Errors about a specific device.
