Error Code details
Severity: Information 
Component: Volume Manager 
Volume length is 352534548 while disk group alignment is 8

The VxVM disk groups have an alignment value of 8 by default. This means that all VxVM objects in the disk group are aligned to 8k boundaries. When the system tries to re-create configuration using a description file with the vxmake command, VxVM makes sure that all object extents are aligned to disk group alignment. If not, VxVM fails to re-create the configuration.

To solve the problem:



1. Before you try to re-create the configuration by using the vxmake command, make sure that disk group has correct disk group alignment. You can use the following command:

# Vxdg list <dgname> | grep alignment


2. Read alignment field from the vxmake description file for the disk group record. If it differs from current disk group alignment value, set it using the following command:

# vxdg –g <dgname> set align=<alignment from vxmake description file>
