we have a HP-UX 11iv3 server in which is running on vxvm(bootdg).
After reboot this server is showing volboot missing error.
System Console is on the Built-In Serial Interface

I tried to boot in vxvm maintainance mode(hpux -vm) as well as single user mode but getting same error.
On internet found out that it can be created again using below command in recovery mode
# vx_emerg_start -m hostname
but not able to find the steps how to do ?

To restore a missing or corrupted /etc/vx/volboot file
- Boot the system into maintenance mode.
- Run vxconfigd in disabled mode:
# vxconfigd -m disable
- Reinitialize the volboot file:
# vxdctl init hostid
# vxdctl add disk sda privoffset=2144
- Reset vxconfigd in boot mode:
# vxconfigd -kr reset -m boot
- Use the following command to confirm that VxVM is running:
# vxdisk list
DEVICE TYPE DISK GROUP STATUS
sda sliced rootdisk bootdg online
sdb sliced rootmir bootdg online
sdc sliced - - error
- Reboot the system.
