You can exclude a path from DMP with the vxdmpadm exclude command. You can return a previously excluded path to DMP control with the vxdmpadm include command. These commands use the
vxvm.exclude file to store the excluded paths. The include path and exclude path operations cannot complete successfully if the
vxvm.exclude file is corrupted.
The following error displays if the
vxvm.exclude file is corrupted:
# vxdmpadm exclude ctlr=fscsi3 VxVM vxdmpadm ERROR V-5-1-3996 File not in correct format
DMP saves the corrupted file with the name
vxvm.exclude.corrupt. DMP creates a new
vxvm.exclude file. You must manually recover from this situation.
To recover from a corrupted exclude file
# vxdmpadm exclude ctlr=fscsi3
vxvm.exclude.corruptfile to find any entries for the excluded paths that are relevant.
