If a disk fails completely and hot-relocation is enabled, the mail message lists the disk that failed and all plexes that use the disk. For example, you can receive mail as shown in this example display:
Subject: Volume Manager failures on host teal
Failures have been detected by the Veritas Volume Manager:
This message shows that
mydg02 was detached by a failure. When a disk is detached, I/O cannot get to that disk. The plexes
mkting-01 were also detached (probably because of the failure of the disk).
One possible cause of the problem could be a cabling error.
See "Partial disk failure mail messages" on page 386.
If the problem is not a cabling error, replace the disk.
See "Removing and replacing disks" on page 125.
