Re: replace disk

Hi Lelu,

Your question is not completely clear. Can you please elaborate more?

I assume you are asking if "vxreattach -rb" should be invoked before actually replacing the disk?

vxreattach reattaches a disk drives that has once again become accessible. 

In fact there is a daemon vxattachd which monitors VxVM for disks being attached. So, if a disk becomes available after it had faulted, vxattachd would get the notification and it would try to attach the disks back by calling vxreattch.

You can use vxreattach manually if you know that disk has failed because of some intermittent non-media errors before trying to replace the disk.
