disk group cannot be imported after abnormal reboot
Solaris version: 8
VxVM version: 3.5
Disk group name: datadg_1
Existing datadg_1 (LUN0) is on storage1. We cloned datadg_1 (LUN0) to storage2 (LUN1). Since the datadg_1 (LUN1) on storage2 is outdated, we wanted to perform host-level mirror for datadg_1 from LUN0 to LUN1 through VxVM. So we assigned the LUN1 to storage1. Before we started the mirror, the machine suddenly rebooted. I now removed LUN1 from storage1 and did try to issue the command # vxdg -tCf import datadg_1 but failed. It showed vxvm:vxdg: ERROR: Disk group datadg_1: import failed: Disk group has no valid configuration copies.
#vxdisk -o alldgs list|grep TESTDG
DEVICE TYPE DISK GROUP STATUS

Re: disk group cannot be imported after abnormal reboot
Can you provide output of the follwoing commands
vxdisk list c4t0d0s2
vxdisk list c4t0d1s2
It might be possible to import the disk group by its disk group ID as it may be confused as to what belongs to datadg_1.
You are using an old unsupported verion of Volume manager it would adviseable to upgrade to at least 4.1 as this has features in it that could help cloning and recover in this situation.
