IOS 2.2.2.3 - PH always missing on a reboot

IOS 2.2.2.3 - PH always missing on a reboot

IOS 2.2.2.3 - PH always missing on a reboot

(OP)
Hi

So I have IOS 2.2.2.3, running on a JS22 in a bladecenter S. The bladecenter S, sends 2 drives to the JS22. Both make up a storage pool, that I run the "VMs" from.

I can see the physical drives ok in IOS --

$ lspv
NAME PVID VG STATUS
hdisk0 0009300afbf100f9 rootvg active
hdisk1 0009300a48ab6b0f sp1 active
hdisk2 0009300a48ab6bf9 sp1 active
$

On a reboot, the hdisk2, is always "missing", and as a result, the VG won't come up --

$ lspv hdisk2
PHYSICAL VOLUME: hdisk2 VOLUME GROUP: sp1

The other disk is ok --

$ lspv hdisk1
PHYSICAL VOLUME: hdisk1 VOLUME GROUP: sp1

If I mark the hdisk2 as removed, then add it - it works. Any idea why?

# chpv -vr hdisk2

RE: IOS 2.2.2.3 - PH always missing on a reboot

What do you see at the error report?
Are hdisk1 and hdisk2 internal disks? or SAN connected?
If internal check the disk in diag.

If external check the path and connect with Storage team to determine the root cause.

RE: IOS 2.2.2.3 - PH always missing on a reboot

(OP)
They are connected via an SAS switch inside the bladecenter.

This is whats in the error log -- the disks all look fine?
