Bypass stale PE ?

Hello,
I have an ancient HP-UX 11.11 system where I have a logical volume marked stale and I can't get it sync'd. I have tried lvsync and lvreduce/lvextend to no avail. It is just one 4Mb PE on the disk that I can't get current.

Code:
# lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol5 | grep stale
LV Status                   available/stale
   00652 /dev/dsk/c9t3d0    00069 current  /dev/dsk/c9t5d0    01470 stale

# vgdisplay -v vg00

I'm wondering if there isn't a way to mark that single PE bad so that LVM won't use it and reassign that LE to another PE since there are more available? I just find it hard to swallow that I have to replace the disk because of a 4Mb sliver.

Thank you for your attention.

If you are having physical disk problems, it's not just the 4MB sliver that's failing. Any disk made in the last 20 years or so auto-remaps failing areas, to no longer be able to do so means so many sectors have failed all over the disk that it can't remap anymore.

@#%$ !! Thanks Corona688.

After reducing the logical volume and reducing the volume group, I replaced the disk with another one:
Code:
# diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c9t5d0
SCSI describe of /dev/rdsk/c9t5d0:
             vendor: SEAGATE
         product id: ST39173WC
               type: direct access
               size: 8891556 Kbytes
   bytes per sector: 512

backed up /etc/lvmtab, ran vgscan, pvcreate, vgextend, lvextend, and I have the same exact stale PE:
Code:
manwms01:/root # lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol5 | grep stale
LV Status                   available/stale
   00652 /dev/dsk/c9t3d0    00069 current  /dev/dsk/c9t5d0    01470 stale

How is that even possible?

We know so little about your system from the sparse information you gave that it is almost impossible to answer..
# 5  
Old 06-10-2014
What other information can I provide that would help? I'll pass on any information I can.

This is an old N4000 and the disks are in a Jamaica enclosure. None of it is supported by HP anymore so I'm left to try and make it limp along.

OK
N4000 had slots fo internal disks, are you using them?
I have no more HP-UX boxes now so I have try to do things by memory...
What I find strange is have vg00 ( OS ) with 6 disks... is it you never made other VG?
is there any mirroring?
Can sou give use the output of
Code:
 ioscan -funC disk

and look if there is anything interresting in /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log, you may be having a failing controller or a failing disk sending weird stuff...
What does pvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/c9t5d0 give you?
But the best would be you, describe us vg00, how it is configured, how the disks are set using what interface/controllers... And giving a minimum information of FS layout...

I inherited the server support and the people responsible for the initial setup are long gone so I do not know much of the history and the server is located in another part of the country where I have no "physical" access to it.

There are no internal disks in the server; it's root volume group is on six of eight Seagate disks in the external A3312A (Jamaica) enclosure. There are two other volume groups but they are in an EMC disk array.

Code:

Aside from typical su, login, ftp, and telnet information, the only thing in the syslog that looks like it pertains to this is the continuous (along with the vgextend and lvextend commands I executed):
Code:
WARNING:vmunix: SCSI: lvstat on servername: Tue Jun 10 05:20:16 CDT 2014
The following logical volumes are not current:
        Logical Volume            Physical Volume     Status
        ---------------------------------------------------------
        /dev/vg00/lvol5           /dev/dsk/c9t5d0     stale

and that is the same output from the previous disk replacement as well as the current one.

vgdisplay for vg00 (where the stale PE is):
Code:
