Thread: vxassist failing

  1. vxassist failing


    I have Volume Manager v4.1 running on Solaris 10.

    I am getting the following error message when trying to create new volumes

    $vxassist -g dg01 make volume21 10G layout=stripe disk1 disk2

    VxVM vxassist ERROR V-5-1-10127 creating subdisk disk1-21:
    Subdisk disk1-21 would overlap subdisk disk1-01

    This command is precisely how I created volumes 1-20. There is ample free
    space remaining in the disk group.



  2. Re: vxassist failing

    post "vxdg -g dg01 free"

    as well as
    vxprint -thg dg01


    and lastly
    vxassist -g maxsize layout=stripe disk1 disk2




    What I want to see is the location of the sub-disk disk1-01

    It depends what each disk (disk1 and 2 - but specifically disk1) has got
    left space-wise.

    I noticed this last nite; somehow the free space is being reported incorrectly
    for disk1. I suppose that is resulting in offset 0 being used for new volumes,
    causing the overlay error.

    hmmmm, this began after a StorageTek visit to reconfig (yet again) our SAN
    to fix some problems.

    The problem is fixed. The configuration database became corrupt somehow. The
    following command rebuilt it without disruption.

    'vxconfigd -k -x cleartempdir'

    Thanks for your help.
