Recovery of DISKGROUP in VXVM (Veritas Volume Manager).

Since long time I was thinking to have practical hands-on to how to recover Diskgroup in VXVM (which got  faulty and we are unable to import that). But unfortunately I wont have real time outputs with me to show how that can be achieved.

But here I got all of them from one of my Friend “Karn Gussain –> Unix Killer”. Thanks Karn because of you I am able to post this unique/complex procedure at our gurkulindia and many of Unix SA’s will take this document as a reference in such critical situations.

We have sol-test as a Physical server (Global Zone) having sol-test-zone as a Logical Server (Non-Global Zone).

root@sol-test: zoneadm list -cvi
ID NAME             STATUS     PATH         BRAND    IP
0 global           running    /             native   shared
1 sol-test-zone    running    /zones/sol-test-zone native   shared

root@sol-test: vxdg import sol-test-zone-oradbdg

VxVM vxdg ERROR V-5-1-10978 Disk group sol-test-zone-oradbdg: import failed: Disk group has no valid configuration copies  –> (This is the Error)

Note:  This is the veritas DG Configuration backup location which is used by default by VXVM to store DG configuration information (/etc/vx/cbr/bk). Though you can change it to some desired location.

root@sol-test: cd /etc/vx/br/bk/

root@sol-test ls

Note: Sometime when there is lock creation happened which in turn banned the disk to be imported so, clearimport of the disk is good idea & then importing DG may be useful. But need to be patient if these disk are not being in used somewhere on the other host.

Below is a script to make it handy when you have numerous copy of disk and need to be clearimported.

Disk group has no valid configuration copies

root@sol-test: vxdg -tfC import sol-test-zone-oradbdg

VxVM vxdg ERROR V-5-1-10978 Disk group sol-test-zone-oradbdg: import failed:
Disk group has no valid configuration copies

Note: 1.) Just try to import the DG by having the healthy “dgid” from a disk which is in enabled state.

2.) Have a quick info of all disk copies and see how many good copy of disk we have in the Disk Group one out of which we can choose for DG restoration.

3.) Below is the script to find quick info will save time to look upon individual disk….

Note: We are unable to restore despite we have DG info , above error is a strange, need to apply different approach…

Note: Just a quich check to see if all the disk in the Disk group are with same goup id or any mismatch…

root@sol-test: vxdisk -o alldgs list |grep sol-test-zone-oradbdg |awk ‘{print $1}’ | while read disk

Note: 1.) Now we have to delete all the “dgid’s” from all the disk which are within the Problematic Disk Group …

2.) Below is the small script which will sort all the disk names  for the disk group and will set the “dgid” & “dg_name” null to all by using “vxprivutil” command again.

Special Note :: we are “/dev/vx/rdmp/” because we have DMP for multipathing.

root@sol-test: for i in `vxdisk -o alldgs list| grep –I sol-test-zone-oradbdg | awk ‘{print $1}’`
> do
> /etc/vx/diag.d/vxprivutil -D set /dev/vx/rdmp/$i dg_name=””
> done

03:42:01: VxVM vxprivutil ERROR V-5-1-595 Disk has no enabled config copies
03:42:01: VxVM vxprivutil ERROR V-5-1-595 Disk has no enabled config copies
03:42:01: VxVM vxprivutil ERROR V-5-1-595 Disk has no enabled config copies

root@sol-test: for i in `cat kk`;do /etc/vx/diag.d/vxprivutil -D set /dev/vx/rdmp/$i dgid=””;done

Note: Ignore the above error , see the below output asnow all the disk are now out of the Disg group as soon as we have deleted the “dgid”  earlier the disk wwe attached to the Disk group and  DG was in  deported state !

root@sol-test: vxdisk -o alldgs list

——– outout just snipped —————————–

Note: Now  create the dg again and add the all the disk into the disk group in the similar fashion as those were before like “ospseudoname=san_allocated_name”

Eg: sol-test-zone-oradbdg01=emc1_0a95

sol-test-zone-oradbdg01 –> ospsudoname or say conventional approach & “emc1_0a95” EMC disk_name.

root@sol-test: vxdg init sol-test-zone-oradbdg sol-test-zone-oradbdg01=emc1_0a95 sol-test-zone-oradbdg02=emc1_0a5d sol-test-zone-oradbdg03=emc1_0a8d sol-test-zone-oradbdg04=emc1_0a4d sol-test-zone-oradbdg05=emc1_0a75 lspz 0280-oradbdg06=emc1_0a99 sol-test-zone-oradbdg07=emc1_0a49
sol-test-zone-oradbdg08=emc1_0a7

In the similar fashion we will add all the disk name.

If again it will show you the error like disk is not in configuration… or something like.. then you need to remove all the “dmp” file like we did below. While removing your DMP controller may change or failover to another linke fron emc1 to emc0

root@sol-test: rm /etc/vx/disk.info
root@sol-test: rm /etc/vx/jbod.info
root@sol-test: rm –rf /dev/vx/rdmp*
root@sol-test: rm –rf /dev/vx/dmp*

Or simply remove (rm /etc/vx/*info)in one shot..

Now re-create the device tree…..

root@sol-test: devfsadm –C (refresh & recreate the device tree)

root@sol-test: vxconfigd -k –> (start new vxconfigd daemon rereading /etc/vx/*.info files, normally run after deleting /etc/vx/*.info files)

root@sol-test: vxdctl initdmp (corrects the incorrect entries in /dev/vx/dmp)

 Note: 1.) Now we will be able to create / add the disk into but need to careful as this might change the controller this happened to my case and then I need to use the emc0 rather than emc1 while adding the disk example

2.)  sol-test-zone-oradbdg01=emc1_0a95  will be now as sol-test-zone-oradbdg01=emc0_0a95 and same for all !!!

 

Now the Disk Group Recovery will be started

 

1.) Creating while along adding Disk into the Disk Group !

root@sol-test: vxdg init sol-test-zone-oradbdg sol-test-zone-oradbdg01=emc0_0a95 sol-test-zone-oradbdg02=emc0_0a5d sol-test-zone-oradbdg03=emc0_0a8d sol-test-zone-oradbdg04=emc0_0a4d sol-test-zone-oradbdg05=emc0_0a75 lspz 0280-oradbdg06=emc0_0a99 sol-test-zone-oradbdg07=emc0_0a49  sol-test-zone-oradbdg08=emc0_0a7

2.) Now collecting the information from the “dumpconfig.out” file which I took from a Disk which was having the Enable configuration earlier in the exercise !

root@sol-test: cat /tmp/dumpconfig.out | vxprint -D – -mvphsr > /var/vxmake.out

3.) Now we will create the whole Disk group configuration using the “vxmake” command from the “vxmake.out” file which we have build from the “dumpconfig.out” file. Here it will put all the volume(s)/plex(s)/Sub Disk(s) back to the configuaration including their original layout !

root@sol-test: vxmake -g sol-test-zone-oradbdg -d /var/vxmake.out

root@sol-test: vxprint -htg sol-test-zone-oradbdg

Note:: While looking the Volumes it will show you in Empty Disable state we will make them Enable active by manually by command line & then we will able to start the volumes in a fashionable way !!!…

root@sol-test: vxvol -g  sol-test-zone-oradbdg startall

4.) Startall will not work as longer the volumes is Empty Disable state need to make them in Enable Active to recover the data…

root@sol-test: vxvol -g  sol-test-zone-oradbdg init active vol01
root@sol-test: vxvol -g  sol-test-zone-oradbdg init active vol02
root@sol-test: vxvol -g  sol-test-zone-oradbdg init active vol03
root@sol-test: vxvol -g  sol-test-zone-oradbdg init active vol04
root@sol-test: vxvol -g  sol-test-zone-oradbdg init active vol05
root@sol-test: vxvol -g  sol-test-zone-oradbdg init active vol06

5.) Now all the  volumes in Enable Active state and  now we can start the volume  one by one we will be done.

root@sol-test: vxvol -g  sol-test-zone-oradbdg start vol01

Do start all volumes  and then mount all the Filesystems…………We are done !!!
Friend .. this happned while I patched the OS and after that Disk Group become unaccessible to the zones and this made mess to the apps FS !! But after 6 hour of tucking hands on this we  had win the battle !!!
