SOLUTION

 

First fix the state of disk from FAILING with vxedit command

[root@abc ~]# vxedit -g DG set failing=off DG01

 

Then fix the state of rlink from PAUSE to ACTIVE with vxrlink command

[root@abc ~]# vxrlink -g DG resume rlk_192.168.1.x_home-rvg

 

Lastly fix RVG state from DISABLED and FAIL to ENABLED to ACTIVE with vxrvg command

[root@abc ~]# vxrvg -g DG start home-rvg
