APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • if /image.data contains LV_SOURCE_DISK_LIST= hdiskX
    Executing command: /usr/sbin/alt_disk_copy -i
    "/image.data" -P "all" -B -d "hdiskXY"
    Will output Warning messages like :
    0516-014 lquerypv: [hdiskX]: The physical volume appears
    to belong to another volume group.
    0516-822 mklv: Unable to create logical volume.
    Warning: mklv unable to create logical volume xxx on
    disk(s) hdiskX, as specified in the image.data file.The
    location for this logical volume will be handled by the
    mklv command.
    

Local fix

  • Don't use the image.data
    Or empty LV_SOURCE_DISK_LIST in image.data
    

Problem summary

  • When doing an alt_disk_{copy,mksysb} with both an image.data
    provided with the -i flag and a list of target disks with the
    -d flag, we attempt to create a LV on the incorrect disks
    if one of LV disks (as listed in the image.data by the
    LV_SOURCE_DISK_LIST field) is a substring of a target disk.
    
    A similar error message will be displayed:
    0516-014 lquerypv:  hdiskX : The physical volume appears
    to belong to another volume group.
    0516-822 mklv: Unable to create logical volume.
    Warning: mklv unable to create logical volume xxx on
    disk(s) hdiskX, as specified in the image.data file.The
    location for this logical volume will be handled by the
    mklv command.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Match the entire disk name.
