Device configuration database synchronization
A system malfunction can cause the device configuration database to become inconsistent with the LVM. You can synchronize the device configuration database with the LVM information.
When the device configuration database becomes inconsistent with the LVM, a logical volume command generates such error messages as:
0516-322 The Device Configuration Database is inconsistent ...
(where the logical volume called LVname is normally available).
0516-306 Unable to find logical volume LVname in the Device Configuration Database.
Attention: Do not remove the /dev entries for volume groups or logical volumes. Do not change the database entries for volume groups or logical volumes using the Object Data Manager.
To synchronize the device configuration database with the LVM information, with root authority, type the following on the command line:
Where VGName is the name of the volume group you want to synchronize.
synclvodm -v VGName
