No clue what happened to my post...
error = 5 is an I/O error. Your disk has had an uncorrectable error so it must be replaced. The procedures are outlined in the document that Dennis listed but you need to identify whether your disk was mirrored and whether it was part of vg00. If not mirrored, you'll have to restore the entire VG from your backup tape once the disk has been replaced.

It's not a disk array, but a JBOD (likely something like a SC10).
# strings /etc/lvmtab
will tell you the VG the disk belongs too.
Once found, follow the "When_good_disks_..." document.
Hope this helps!

The easier way to see what VG the disk belongs to, and what LVs are on the disk is to use the 'pvdisplay' command.
# pvdisplay -v /dev/dsk/c7t8d0 | more
Then to see if the LV or LVs that are on the disk are mirrored, use the 'lvdisplay' command.
