a disk in error state usually mean disk has i/o related issue.

From vxvm 4.1 (hope I remembered the vetrsion correctly) onwards, disk in error state indicating the disk has an i/o relaetd issue.

you need to do the followings

1. check system log to see if there are any scsi relaetd errors against disks

2. check /etc/vx/dmpevents.log for disk scsi read/write errors

3. run the command below

vxdmpadm getsubpaths | grep -i disable

vxdmpadm listctlr all

do know if there are issues with dmp paths

4. if there are no scsi error, run vxdisksetup -i <disk> to inmitialize one disk to see if it works and if the command makes the disk online.

By the way, what is the OS version and vxvm, version?;
