Recovering a destroyed disk group

If a disk group has been accidentally destroyed, you can recover it, provided that the disks that were in the disk group have not been modified or reused elsewhere.

 To recover a destroyed disk group

  1. Enter the following command to find out the disk group ID (dgid) of one of the disks that was in the disk group:

    # vxdisk -s list disk_access_name

    The disk must be specified by its disk access name, such as c0t12d0. Examine the output from the command for a line similar to the following that specifies the disk group ID.

    dgid: 963504895.1075.bass

  2. Use the disk group ID to import the disk group:

    # vxdg import dgid
