Error Code details
Severity: Warning 
Component: Volume Manager 
vol_disk_change_iopolicy: Public region policy specific open failed for %s VXDEVXSTR ret = 0x%x

As part of vxconfigd startup or a device scan, Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) tries to assign the I/O policy to the disk based on the number of the paths to it. The I/O policy can be set to single path or multiple path on the disks. 


If there is any change in the policy, VxVM must close the device and open the public region of the device. When the opening of the public region fails during a policy change, the error message above displays.
