This error indicates that the volume cannot be started because it does not contain any valid plexes. This can happen, for example, if disk failures have caused all plexes to be unusable. It can also happen as a result of actions that caused all plexes to become unusable (for example, forcing the dissociation of subdisks or detaching, dissociation, or offlining of plexes).

It is possible that this error results from a drive that failed to spin up. If so, rebooting may fix the problem. If that does not fix the problem, then the only recourse is to repair the disks involved with the plexes and restore the file system from a backup.

Restoring the root or /usr file system requires that you have a valid backup.
