IV55736: REPLACEPV MAY FAIL W/ 0516-1232 WHEN DISK WAS PHYSICALLY REMOVED APPLIES TO AIX 7100-03
Closed as program error.
replacepv may fail with a 0516-1232 error when a disk is physically removed: 0516-1232 replacepv: NOTE: If this program is terminated before the completion due to a system crash or ctrl-C, and you want to continue afterwards execute the following command replacepv -R /tmp/replacepv12976316 0516-015 lmigratelv: The migrate was done but the partition could not be resynced. 0516-1227 replacepv: Warning, replacepv did not completely succeed.
Replacepv has some faulty logic to try and validate that it has successfully mirrored an LV onto the new replacement disk. So when you are replacing a bad disk that has stalepps (would not be uncommon), replacepv will create a copy of each LV onto the new disk, sync, and then verify. When it verifies, it sees that the copy on the bad disk is still stale, so it warns that the LV may not be fully migrated, but still removes the copy of the bad disk, and then fails out of replacepv without migrating any remaining LVs to the new disk. . You'll see the warnings above, and see that one LV was successfully moved to the new disk, but if you had any other LVs on the bad disk, they would not be moved.
Correct the validation part of replacepv so that it will not warn/fail if the LV is not fully syncd, so long as the new copy on the new disk is sync'd. . This will allow replacepv to continue migrating the rest of the LVs to the replacement disk.
