Error Code details
V-5-1-8643
Severity: Error 
Component: Volume Manager 
Message:
Device %s: resize failed: %s
Description:

In general, this error implies that the vxconfigd daemon replied with error code -6 to the vxdisk utility. 
 

On Linux, an error with a minus sign (-) is the error number (errno) from the vxconfigd operating system call. In this case, errno 6 indicates ENXIO which means No such device or address. Either the device is not accessible or the device database is obsolete. However, this error may have different meanings for different platforms.

Verify that the devices under specified dmpnode are accessible.  If necessary, update the operating system disk database with operating system-specific commands, and then update the Dynamic Multi-Pathing (DMP) database by running vxdisk scandisks.

 

Enter the following:

 

vxdmpadm getsubpaths dmpnodename=device

 

For each path in the command output, verify that the corresponding operating system device is visible to the host.
