Need to remove a disk from Veritas

I have a bogus disk that keeps showing up as failed from vxdisk list

- - disk hpdg failed was:c2t0d11s2


There isnt any c2 devices on the system:

# ls /dev/dsk/c2*
/dev/dsk/c2*: No such file or directory
# ls /dev/rdsk/c2*
/dev/rdsk/c2*: No such file or directory
# ls /dev/vx/dmp/c2*
/dev/vx/dmp/c2*: No such file or directory
# ls /dev/vx/rdmp/c2*
/dev/vx/rdmp/c2*: No such file or directory


These arent even in the format neither:


AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS:
0. c0t0d0 <SUN9.0G cyl 4924 alt 2 hd 27 sec 133>
/sbus@3,0/SUNW,fas@3,8800000/sd@0,0
1. c0t1d0 <SUN9.0G cyl 4924 alt 2 hd 27 sec 133>
/sbus@3,0/SUNW,fas@3,8800000/sd@1,0
2. c4t0d0 <HP-OPEN-8-SUN-0110 cyl 9964 alt 2 hd 15 sec 96>
/sbus@a,0/fcaw@2,0/sd@0,0
3. c4t0d1 <HP-OPEN-8-SUN-0110 cyl 9964 alt 2 hd 15 sec 96>


I've done devfsadm -C; devfsadm and c2 they're not discovered neither.


I've restarted the vxconfigd daemon too and it still wont go away.


vxprint shows that disk as "NODEVICE"

dm disk - - - - NODEVICE



When I list the disks from vxdiskadm - that disk isnt listed:


List disk information
Menu: VolumeManager/Disk/ListDisk
Use this menu operation to display a list of disks. You can
also choose to list detailed information about the disk at
a specific disk device address.

Enter disk device or "all" [<address>,all,q,?] (default: all)

The regular vxdisk list is still showing it though:

I've had Veritas walked me through and removing all the c2 devices and rebooted the server but it's still showing up.


Is there a veritas database where I can go in and remove this bogus disk?

if you're sure it's really bogus:

Make sure there are no dead plexes hanging around, and remove them if there are.

You can check with

Code:
vxprint -pg hpdg | grep NODEVICE

Column 2 is plex name. If there are some dead plexes, disassociate and remove them:

Code:
vxplex -g hpdg -o rm dis <plex name>

Then vxedit the disk out of hpdg:

Code:
vxedit -g hpdg -rf rm disk

It might help if you said what part wasn't working, and what error message you got, because the method described, does work:
