Boot to led 223
Customer's system is booted to a led 223, after the customer
did a shutdown -F, then powered the system off for
a little while.
1. Booted from a mksysb tape.
2. getrootfs hdisk0
It did not find hdisk0 at all
3. Called Hard Ware support (800) 426-7378
The customer had a sticksion problem, which the CE fixed.
When the customer rebooted the system it hung on led 555
5. Booted from a mksysb tape.
6. getrootfs hdisk0 sh
hdisk0 now shows in a removed state with the rootvg
We need to run the lchangepv command to include it back
with rootvg. Most likely it ended in this state when the
sticksion problem occurred. Since the system could not
access the drive the system set the drive in a removed
7. Since the lchangepv command is not part of the ram filesystem
we will need to restore it from the mksysb tape.
a. tctl -f /dev/rmt0 rewind
b. tctl -f /dev/rmt0.1 fsf 1
c. restbyname -xvqf /dev/rmt0.1 ./tapeblksz
d. cat tapeblksz
value is 1024
e. /etc/methods/chggen -l rmt0 -a block_size=1024
f. tctl -f /dev/rmt0 rewind
g. tctl -f /dev/rmt0.1 fsf 3
h. pax -rnvf /dev/rmt0 -pmop ./usr/sbin/lchangepv
8. lqueryvg -Atp hdisk0
Get vgid (under the logical part)
Get pvid (under phsysical) First one)
000021442AC090 (I think)
9. lchangepv -g vgid -p pvid -r2
11. bosboot -ad /dev/hdisk0
12. turn key to normal mode and reboot
System booted to normal mode
Closing with customer approval
