Not ready error during read ASC: 0x4 ASCQ: 0x3 Warning: error reading backup label. The signature is actually written to the disk by the celerra, its not a flag, so thats why a VTOC is needed.

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. weblink A physical backup of partition 2 to an identical disk's partition 2 copies the data in every single block, including the volume's VTOC. Nowwhen I run the vxdisk -e list it does not respond with any output, just returns me to the comand prompt. Report Abuse Like Show 0 Likes (0) 9.
Do something like: dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/??? Format ran for a while and then said there was a problem with the disk geometry. bs=1024 count=100 And retry the solaris format command. navigate here simplified: VTOC can only be written if VTOC exists.
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 After the disk is labelled, the s2 slice is one way of addressing the whole disk. A Sun label should not be needed to see the disk in format unless something else is going on.

I just brought up a 70gig FC drive that needed reformatting to 512 byte sectors- probably out of some horrible EMC box.
