not a valid vxfs file system - CDS to sliced

Level 2

Can you plese help me to mount vxfs after disk replacemnt?

server1:/# mount -F vxfs /dev/vx/dsk/appdg/scratch /scratch/
UX:vxfs mount: ERROR: V-3-20012: not a valid vxfs file system
UX:vxfs mount: ERROR: V-3-24996: Unable to get disk layout version

I think the problem began when we had 2 disks in DG. One was sliced and second CDS. First the sliced failed, we replaced it, then later CDS failed and we replace it with sliced to have both sliced. First volume in this DG is ok, but second is not recogized and vxfs, probably becouse some sector offset?

Can you please help to fix it without data loss?

Making new FS on this volume will fix it (with loss os data of course)?

Thank you

More info please - tell us about volume layout.
Show us output of 'vxprint -ht -g <diskgroup>'

Please also share exact steps you have followed to replace the disk at OS-level and VxVM level.
