vgdisplay shows "couldn't query physical path" but all VGs are sttil mounted

Hi

 

when running vgdisplay -v, i get the following:

But all my VG's are mounted and available.  How can this be?

It is a bit strange:

 

Cur PV 1
Act PV 0

 

But maybe the legacy device files have changed for some reason, but the persistant device files still work.

 

With 11.31 you should always work with the new agile device files.

 

 

You should use "vgdsf" now to convert!


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: vgdisplay shows "couldn't query physical path" but all VGs are sttil mounted

can you run:

 

#lvdisplay -v /dev/vg210/db1

 

So we can check what disk is listed in the lvol.

Looks like the disks have changed their device files while the server was running, last time I had a similar problem:

 

1. you need to check that you have all your disks even with new device names, using the uuid of the disk.

2. umount fs and deactivate the vg

3. vgexport with a map and vgid, vgexport -v -m -s

4. vgimport with -s, it will import with the new correct device Ids

5. vgactivate and mount fs
