VxVM vxdisksetup ERROR V-5-2-2480 Disk is too small for supplied parameters

Today, I added new disks, get the error messages as following

1. Create /devices entries by OS command

# devfsadm -c disk

2. Initiate the disks, and get the following errors

wvprp06# ./vxdisksetup -ie c3t18d30
./vxdisksetup: test: argument expected
wvprp06# ./vxdisksetup -ie c3t18d30 format=sliced
./vxdisksetup: test: argument expected
wvprp06# ./vxdisksetup -ie c3t18d30 format=simple
./vxdisksetup: test: argument expected
wvprp06#  ./vxdisksetup -ie c3t18d30 format=cdsdisk
VxVM vxdisksetup ERROR V-5-2-1529 The -e flag is incompatible with the cdsdisk format.
wvprp06#  ./vxdisksetup -i  c3t18d30 format=cdsdisk
VxVM vxdisksetup ERROR V-5-2-2480 Disk is too small for supplied parameters
wvprp06# format

Solution

1. Then, I check the disk status, it showed the multi-pathing is invalid

wvprp06# hagrp -switch REP_GROUP   -to wvprp06
wvprp06# vxdisk list c3t18d30
Device:    c3t18d30s2
devicetag: c3t18d30
type:      auto
flags:     online error private autoconfig
pubpaths:  block=/dev/vx/dmp/c3t18d30s2 char=/dev/vx/rdmp/c3t18d30s2
guid:      –
udid:      FUJITSU%5FETERNUS%5FDXL%5F0210AD%5F0020
site:      –
errno:     Device path not valid <– the multi-pathing is invalid
Multipathing information:
numpaths:   1
c3t18d30s2      state=enabled

 

2. Re-enable vxdctl, the problem was fixed

wvprp06# vxdctl enable
wvprp06# vxdisk list c3t18d30
Device:    c3t18d30
devicetag: c3t18d30
type:      auto
info:      format=none
flags:     online ready private autoconfig invalid
pubpaths:  block=/dev/vx/dmp/c3t18d30 char=/dev/vx/rdmp/c3t18d30
guid:      –
udid:      FUJITSU%5FETERNUS%5FDXL%5F0210AD%5F0020
site:      –
Multipathing information:
numpaths:   2
c3t18d30        state=enabled
c2t19d30        state=enabled
wvprp06# ./vxdisksetup -ie c3t18d30
wvprp06#
