The -r reset option was specified to vxconfigd, but the VxVM kernel drivers could not be reset. The most common reason is "A virtual disk device is open." This implies that a VxVM tracing or volume device is open.

If you want to reset the kernel devices, track down and kill all processes that have a volume or Veritas Volume Manager tracing device open. Also, if any volumes are mounted as file systems, unmount those file systems.

Any reason other than "A virtual disk device is open" does not normally occur unless there is a bug in the operating system or in VxVM.
