what actually happened was, "there was rootdisk failure and I replaced the root disk, then I mirrored new rootdisk with mirror disk . Now mirror disk failed  too and I had to boot from new boot disk. This root disk is not encapsulated". What needs to be done to encapsulate root disk  properly?

Hi,

Couple of additional questions

1. What is the version of vxvm  & OS ?

2. The partition table you have pasted belongs to which disk ?

3. You already have a rootdg, does it list rootdg when you select "list" in the question below ?

Which disk group [<group>,list,q,?]

4. The partition table which you have pasted, something is wrong as sectors are overlapping. Usually in Solaris, slice 2 represents whole disk, here you have Slice 4 which is almost of whole disk capacity yet defining sub partitions on other slices. Is that correct ?
