MIRRORING DISK ERROR WITH VVM 4

Created: 13 Apr 2005 • Updated: 02 Mar 2009

Hi all,

I am quite new to Veritas VM 4. We had a failure of the mirrored root disk early this week. We have received a replacement disk and now I am trying to mirror the root disk to this new disk so it is the new mirrored root disk.

Unfortunately when I select the mirror option and then select the new disk I want to mirror it reports the following error:

VxVM vmmirror ERROR V-5-2 -3604 No non-redundent volumes to mirror.

This sounds like a simple enough thing to do but why wont it let me mirror the disk. the new disk is in the root disk group aswell?

sorry if this has an obvious answere but I have not had much luck looking around on the web

Many Thanks in advance
