APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • chvg -g vgname may cause an error shown below:
    0516-072 lqueryvg: Bad-block directory is corrupted. The
    physical
            volume data has been permanently damaged. Run
    diagnostics.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • For 4k block size VGs, chvg -g will fail, and cause future LVM
    commands to fail with the error above about corrupt Bad-block
    directory.
    .
    This is because chvg -g erroneously tries to set a bad block
    sector during the grow disk operation, when 4k block size
    VGs do not support bad block relocation
    

Problem conclusion

  • Correct chvg -g code to not try to update bad block directory
    information for 4k block size VGs.
    

Temporary fix
