Hello,

online:invalid indicates that disk is not initialized in veritas. you will need to do a  "vxdisksetup" on the device to make it online

#vxdisksetup -i c0t1d0s2

man page of vxdisksetup can be found here

dear Gaurav,
this is the output

# /etc/vx/bin/vxdisksetup -i c0t1d0s2

VxVM vxdisksetup ERROR V-5-2-2206 c0t1d0s2: An invalid device address was specified; it must be of
the form cCtTdD, mcCtTdD or _ where

C = host bus adapter controller number
T = target device controller number, if used
D = logical unit (disk) number within target device controller

is the logical name of the enclosure to which the
disk belongs
is the logical number of the disk

and this is the output on giving the device name as specified c0t1d0

unknown# /etc/vx/bin/vxdisksetup -i c0t1d0
c0t1d0s2
VxVM vxdisksetup ERROR V-5-2-5241 Cannot label as disk geometry cannot be obtained.

thanks for the quick response

Hi,

Is the disk visible from operating system, i.e from solaris ? have you labelled the disk already from "format" menu ?
