Environment

Issue



System has number of new TB LUNs presented and then unpresented with TB and non-TB and then TB.

 

The new LUNs fails to be initialized in VM under vxdisksetup command.

 


Error



vxdisksetup -i c#t#################d##
VxVM vxdisksetup ERROR V-5-2-4006 Disk c#t#################d##
contains auto:none DA record c#t#################d##
Disk cannot be reinitialized by vxdisksetup.

 


Environment



Solaris 10 and SFHA 5.1SP1

 


Cause



As the new LUNs are not defined as EFI type, VM cannot read the disk geometry table properly.

 


Solution



The new TB LUNs must be formatted as EFI type.

# format -e

Once done, then remove the da records for all the new LUNs on host and initilizes them.

# vxdisk rm <new TB LUN>

# vxdisksetup -i <new TB LUN>
