AIX 0557 error The root file system does not mount

Hi,

on running system, a disk was added

hdiskx

then importvg -y oraclevg hdiskx

but hdiskx was actually a rootvg so since rootvg was already present in the existing system this happened


Code:
Imported hdisk2 which was rootvg as importvg y oraclevg hdisk2 in server since rootvg already existed

# importvg -y oraclevg hdisk2
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name hd5 changed to bootlv00.
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name hd6 changed to pagelv00.
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name hd8 changed to loglv01.
0516-712 synclvodm: The chlv succeeded, however chfs must now be
        run on every filesystem which references the old log name hd8.
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name hd4 changed to fslv01.
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name hd2 changed to fslv02.
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name hd9var changed to fslv03.
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name hd3 changed to fslv04.
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name hd1 changed to fslv05.
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name hd10opt changed to fslv06.
0516-530 synclvodm: Logical volume name fwdump changed to fslv07.

oraclevg

1) will this effect the present machine, should I check something before rebooting the existing system

2) removed the hdisk2 by

Code:
# varyoffvg oraclevg
# exportvg oraclevg
# rmdev -dl hdisk2

then I created an LPAR and assigned this hdisk2 and tried to boot from it
I got the led 0557
0557


Explanation

The root file system does not mount.

boot into maintenance mode from NIM or CD, rename the lv's to the previous names, do a bosboot and bootlist and then try to boot again from this disk - should work.
Do not forget to rename / reattach the logfilesystem - you probably have to clean it up via logform
