There is no other software installed on the system, just powerpath and the OS. Just click the sign up button to choose a username and then you can ask your own questions on the forum. if I overwrite the first megabyte of s2 with zeroes, I cannot write on the disk again. Maybe someone has a definite answer to this?

you can perform a cleanup by following link: If not working, probably restart the server with reconfig option would be my last go.... Under the Solaris Volume Manager, writing to cylinder 0 is seen as a write I/O error and reported to the system console and /var/adm/messages as follows: md:[kern.notice] NOTICE: md: d1: write When using a volume manager like Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM), copying between individual volumes created under this volume manager is safe, as VxVM avoids the VTOC issue by always excluding these Once sformat has a label on it, regular format will work fine. > >> > >> Gregm > >> > > > > I will try this.

Warning: error writing VTOC.
Warning: no backup labels
Label failed. is there a system call for that? Type of disk: We have 3 quorum devices assigned to both systems, several 2gb mirrored metas and several 34gb mirrored metas (all seen by both systems).

Does the source machine of source luns use IOfencing or any sort of reservation mechanism at SAN layer ? We can see the metas from the host side, but not able to write to them. But I do not think I should have to manually zero out VTOC to write a new one, when connected to Clariion. I would have hoped it could be cleared with the symld command like other reservations (AIX / MSCS).The alternative is to make sure that you run the appropriate Veritas / Sun

I thought about it, and > decided to re-format the disk and try again.

Question in detail: To create VTOC, format needs to write s2.

Thanks for the hint. > I have a bunch of non-recongnizable FC drives from e-bay, 520 byte sectors. > I think they came from AS400's or Hitachi something. > I know Sun's format couldn't hack it, sformat worked like >> >> a >> >> champ. They cleanly do the job, but what are these calls actually? I just brought up a 70gig FC drive that needed reformatting to 512 byte sectors- probably out of some horrible EMC box.

Auto configure", unless I missed it before. It just need to be able to successfully open the s2 device (which is just a symlink to the real device) to know if a disk is there. Report Abuse Like Show 0 Likes (0) 3.

If I do "prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s2" I get: prtvotc: /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s2: Unable to read Disk geometry errno = 0x5 WARNING: /[email protected],60000/SUNW,[email protected]/[email protected],0/[email protected],0 (ssd1): Corrupt label; wrong magic number Now when I run format, for

As you can see, this is a somewhat "hidden" problem, which can be best avoided by always excluding cylinder 0 (the VTOC) when using raw devices for either partitions or components Then in format you should see the Sun labeled disk as a choice when you need to select the type of the non-Sun disk. Both disks already have partitions in them so I am deleting the partitions of second disk(c1t1do) using format command and selecting cylinder start 0 and size 0mb. Until now, I have been doing this on HP EVA array.
