I/O errors have been received in more than one column of a RAID-5 volume.

    The error can be caused by one of the following problems:

  • a controller failure making more than a single drive unavailable

  • the loss of a second drive while running in degraded mode

  • two separate disk drives failing simultaneously (unlikely)

Correct the hardware failures if possible. Then recover the volume using the vxrecover command.
