Volume Manager; importing a disk

System: Alpha with Tru64 5.1b

Disk under LSM (Logical Storage Manager; essentially v2 of Veritas VxVM) control was generating disk errors. The disk was timing out a lot and generating a few disk errors. DBAs couldn't keep the oracle instance up on that node of the cluster. I contacted HP and got a replacement disk and replaced it a couple of days ago.

Unfortunately, the DBAs didn't have a good back up of the data.

I've put the old disk back in the SCSI shelf and would like to have LSM recognize it again but without losing any of the data on the public disk.

We're considering running voldisksetup disk06 to bring the disk back under LSM control and then volrecover disk06 to restore the metadata for this disk.

The question is, would voldisksetup cause a problem or lose the data that currently exists in the public disk? Can you think of an alternate way that I can research?

Thanks for checking this out.

Carl

I will move this out of the shell scripting forum to a more appropriate forum.
