AIX: How to recover from the loss of Quorum?

-4 disks in the VG (mirrored LVs, 2 disks in one storage bay, 2 in the other storage bay)
-one of the storage bays lost power and the Quorum was lost -> VG was taken offline
How to correct:
Because the VG was not varied off by the OS, I had to do it manually.
umount all FS
Now a forced varyon :)
varyonvg -f myvg
fsck (all filesystems)
mount (all filesystems)
Then, after the storage becomes online again:
redefinevg -d hdiskX myvg
Make the two missing physical volumes available again:
chpv -va hdiskY1
chpv -va hdiskY2
