Error Code details
Severity: Error 
Component: Volume Manager 
Device %s appears to be owned by disk group %s.

The vxdg command displays this message when it creates a new disk group or it adds a disk to an existing disk group. The message is the result of the one of the following conditions:


  • The disk being added is part of a deported disk group.
  • You specified the -k option with the vxdg adddisk command, and the disk is being added to a different disk group that the one from which it was removed.

Platform: Solaris 10 (SPARC), Solaris 10 (x86-64)
Release: 5.0MP3

If either of the conditions above is true, do not add the disk to the disk group. If you specified the -k option, determine the correct disk group to which this disk group should be added. Enter:

vxdisk list disk

If neither of the conditions above is true, the error could have occurred because a deported disk group has been abandoned. If the disk does not contain data that you may need again, initialize the disk, and use it to add to a disk group.
