Hello Guys,

This is solaris 8 and VXFS= 5.0,REV=5.0A55_sol.

For some reason I find Disk_7 and Disk_8 is showing disk c2t3d0, as below (notice first 2 lines)

bash-2.03# cat /etc/vx/
HITACHI%5FDK32EJ36NSUN36G%5FDISKS%5FHITACHI%20DK32EJ-36NC%20%20%20%20%20435B6497 c2t3d0 0x4440048 0x2 Disk_7 Disk DISKS

Disk_7 and Disk_8 were shown failed in vxdisk list, so I used vxdiskadm and resttached and reinitialized the disks and added to disk group like other disks.

then the Volume came online and I could mount it. But /etc/vx/ is bothering me with same solaris disk name for 2 Veritas Devices

now vxdisk list shows online,
vxdisk list
Disk_0 auto:none - - online invalid
Disk_1 auto:cdsdisk Disk3 D2_Array online
Disk_2 auto:cdsdisk Disk1 D2_Array online
Disk_3 auto:cdsdisk Disk2 D2_Array online
Disk_4 auto:cdsdisk - - online
Disk_5 auto:cdsdisk Disk2A D2_Array online
Disk_6 auto:cdsdisk Disk3A D2_Array online
Disk_7 auto:cdsdisk Disk4 D2_Array online
Disk_8 auto:cdsdisk Disk5 D2_Array online
cat /etc/vx/
scheme=ebn persistence=yes

Anything we can do make sure things don't break in the future? If you require any other info, please let me know

Thanks in advance..Smilie
