Error Code details
Severity: Error 
Component: Volume Manager 
Volume %s has no connectivity across the cluster. Use '-o force' to force the operation
'This error message is displayed only in FSS (Flexible shared storage) environments when recovery of a detached volume may fail. Storage for a volume may come from directly-attached-storage (DAS) on different nodes. If all the nodes that contribute storage for a volume become inaccessible while the application is online, the volume can be marked DETACHED. Once the nodes become accessible, the user can initiate recovery of such volumes either by running the ''vxrecover'' or ''vxvol start'' commands (In general auto –recovery will take place). However, if the recovery is initiated before the minimum required nodes (that complete the volume) become accessible, the recovery can fail with the specified message.'

'1. Ensure that the nodes that contribute storage for the volume are accessible: # vxclustadm nidmap The output must indicate that the node is part of the cluster. If the required nodes are part of the cluster and the error message is still displayed, manually force recovery of the volume as follows: # vxvol start -o force '
