Disk is okay.

I know it should be online invalid.


For both T5120 systems, the problem is same.

I have many disk from san and two disks internal.

For the boot disk, for both system, it says error state.

Disks are okay physically.

There may be some point patch for SF 5.1RP2 for boot disk mirroring?

As you can see, disk_2 is showing in 'error' state.

But it should show as 'online invalid'.

There seems to be an error with the disk.

Check the status of the disk from OS/VxVM and SAN.

I have installed SP 5.1RP2 on solaris 10 system.

I am trying to encapsulate the boot disk and after that I will make


In the vxdisk list,

It shows  


DEVICE       TYPE            DISK         GROUP        STATUS

disk_2       auto            -            -            error

disk_3       auto:none       -            -            online invalid

st2540-0_0   auto:none       -            -            online invalid


when I try to encapsulate the disk disk_2;

it says


Select disk devices to encapsulate:                                  

[<pattern-list>,all,list,q,?] disk_2

  Here is the disk selected.  Output format: [Device_Name]




Continue operation? [y,n,q,?] (default: y) 

  You can choose to add this disk to an existing disk group or to

  a new disk group.  To create a new disk group, select a disk group

  name that does not yet exist.


Which disk group [<group>,list,q,?] rootdg


Create a new group named rootdg? [y,n,q,?] (default: y) 


Use a default disk name for the disk? [y,n,q,?] (default: y) 

  A new disk group will be created named rootdg and the selected

  disks will be encapsulated and added to this disk group with

  default disk names.




Continue with operation? [y,n,q,?] (default: y) 

  This disk device is disabled (offline) and cannot be used.

  Output format: [Device_Name]




Hit RETURN to continue.


When I try to make online;


It says


Select a disk device to enable [<disk>,list,q,?] disk_2

  VxVM vxdisk ERROR V-5-1-531 Device disk_2: online failed:

        Device path not valid


Enable another device? [y,n,q,?] (default: n)


Is there any idea?
