Release: 5.0MP3
Content:

1. Disk group %s: cannot create: Disk private region contents are invalid

Description:

The disk that will be used with a disk group should have a valid Vertias Volume Manager (VxVM) header. This error occurs if the disk does not have a valid private region with a VxVM header.

Solution:

Before you run the vxdg init dgname disk command,  initialize the disk with the vxdisk -f init diskname command  to make VxVM write its header on the private region of the disk.



2. Disk group %s: cannot create: Disk device is offline

Description:

The disk that will be used with a disk group should be in online state. This error occurs when the disk is offline or it is under LVM.

Solution:

Take the disk offline by running the vxdisk online diskname command.



3. Disk group %s: cannot create: vxconfigd is currently disabled

Description:

For VxVM to make any configuration changes, vxconfigd should be running in enabled mode. This error occurs when vxconfigd is not running in enabled mode.

Solution:

Run the vxdctl enable command to make vxconfigd run in enabled mode.



4. Disk group %s: cannot create:  Diskgroup version not supported in release

Description:
 

The new disk group being created should have a version between the minimum and maximum supported versions. This error occurs if the specified version is not in that range.

Solution:
 

Run the vxdctl support command to find the minimum and maximum supported disk group versions with the release. The disk group version input should be always within this range.



5. Disk group %s: cannot create: Disk group has no valid configuration copies

Description:
 

VxVM writes its disk group configuration information to the private region of the disk. This information is read and updated during VxVM operations. This error occurs if VxVM finds that all the disks used to create the disk group are disabled to store configuration copies.

Solution:
 

Run the vxdisk -f init disk command on one of the disks used to create the disk group to enable it for storing configuration copies.
