To resolve this issue:

  1. Set the coordinator attribute of the disk group to off. Enter the following:
    # vxdg -g diskgroup set coordinator=off
  2. Add disks to (or remove disks from) the disk group. Enter the following:
    # vxdg -g diskgroup adddisk device
  3. Set the coordinator attribute back to on. Enter the following:
    # vxdg -g diskgroup set coordinator=on

    If the disk group contains an even number of disks, you cannot set the
    coordinator attribute to on.
