Recovering volumes in shared disk groups

Volumes can only be recovered on the master node.

The vxrecover utility is used to recover plexes and volumes after disk replacement. When a node leaves a cluster, it can leave some mirrors in an inconsistent state. The vxrecover utility can be used to recover such volumes. The -c option to vxrecover causes it to recover all volumes in shared disk groups. The vxconfigd daemon automatically calls the vxrecover utility with the -c option when necessary.

Warning: While the vxrecover utility is active, there can be some degradation in system performance.
