Thread: VxVM vxdisksetup ERROR V-5-2-2480 Disk is too small for supplied parameters

  1. VxVM vxdisksetup ERROR V-5-2-2480 Disk is too small for supplied parameters



    I use SunFire V890 + StorEdge 9985 with vxvm 4.1 + mp1 installed.
    Also I have installed ASL package libvxUSP.so for 9985 support.

    But I cannot use the disks from StorEdge 9985 with size > 1 TB.
    For example, GENESIS0_2.

    But I can use small disks on this array only (like GENESIS0_0).

    Some outputs:

    -------------------------------------------------

    cat vxdisk_list_GENESIS0_2
    Device: GENESIS0_2
    devicetag: GENESIS0_2

    The secret is in "errno: Device path not valid"


    OK, what that means is that VM can not get to layout of the disk.
    By default , VM will look at slice 2 (on Solaris)

    Does this disk have a slice 2 ?

    Thank you for your help.
    You are right - please, see OS_NATIVE_NAME for GENESIS0_2 and GENESIS0_3
    How to fix this paths?

  4. Re: VxVM vxdisksetup ERROR V-5-2-2480 Disk is too small for supplied

    add slice 2 (use format)

    then do "vxdctl enable"
