This can result from using vxdctl hostid to change the Veritas Volume Manager host ID for the system. The error indicates that one of the disks in a disk group could not be updated with the new host ID. This usually indicates that the disk has become inaccessible or has failed in some other way.

Try running the following command to determine whether the disk is still operational:

# vxdisk check device

If the disk is no longer operational, vxdisk should print a message such as:error messagesDisk write failure

device: Error: Disk write failure

This will result in the disk being taken out of active use in its disk group, if it has not already been taken out of use. If the disk is still operational, which should not be the case, vxdisk prints:

device: Okay

If the disk is listed as "Okay," try running vxdctl hostid again. If it still results in an error, contact Veritas Technical Support.
