hdisk status in sdd volume groups

hdisk status in sdd volume groups

hdisk status in sdd volume groups

hi all

we recently upgraded our san switches. after that, i found i got many hdisks showing in lsdev with status "Defined" and "Available". the number of "Defined" is equal to "Available". the time stamp shows all "Available" disks created at our downtime night.

"datapath query device" shows all hdisks associated to vpath device as "Available" in lsdev.

but somehow, i just remember that all disks in vpath volume groups should be "Defined", not "Available".

can anyone help me to verify that status in your system?

thanks in advance,

just try 'synclvodm'
