I moved my disk to new install linux os

*** Moved to new post from https://vox.veritas.com/t5/Storage-Foundation/VxVM-vxdg-ERROR-V-5-1-10978-Disk-group-nbu-dg-import-f...  ***

I am facing issue for my disk group. My OS got currupted so I move my disk to new install linux os with new hardware.

I am able to see disk online but cant see disk group (ora_dg). when I am trying to create new dg with the same name it gives an error ora_dg already exist and disk_0 is part of it.

My disk o/p mentioned below or you can use attached DG_error file

Re: I moved my disk to new install linux os

Have you tried to import ora_dg?

vxdg import ora_dg

Re: I moved my disk to new install linux os

hmm

if you want to import the old disk group the just run 'vxdg import ora_dg'

if you don't want to import it but create a new disk group with the same name, you need to either reinitialise disk_0 (/etc/vx/bin/vxdisksetup) or rename the disk group:

vxdg -n new_dg_name import ora_dg

@unixlinuxman did you manage to import this dg?
