I would suggest that this is because you have used the -d flag in your restvg command. The manual page is very confusingly written. You have a volume group backup file, I agree but you need to specify an input device instead. I can't even work out what the file option is for. I've never got it to work properly.

Of course, using -d for a file and -f for a device doesn't make it any more sensible.

I would suggest that you unmount and remove the filesystems then the volume group and try again with:-
restvg -f /tmp/ hdisk15 hdisk16

The -r flag is not required if you have excluded the files when you did the backup. you might want to add the -q flag to minimise the output you get and any prompts if you want to automate this.
