volreattach - Reattaches disk drives that have once again
/usr/sbin/volreattach [-rb] [accessname...]
/usr/sbin/volreattach -c accessname
The volreattach utility has the following options: Calls
the volrecover utility to attempt to recover stale plexes
of any volumes on the failed disk. Performs the reattach
operation in the background. Checks whether a reattach is
possible. No operation is performed, but the name of the
disk group and disk media name at which the disk can be
reattached is displayed.
The volreattach utility attempts to reattach disks using
the same disk group and media names they had before
This operation may be necessary if a disk has a transient
failure, or if some disk drivers are unloaded or unloadable
when the Logical Storage Manager is started, causing
disks to enter the failed state.
If the problem is fixed, the volreattach command can be
used to reattach the disks without plexes being flagged as
stale, as long as the reattach happens before any volumes
on the disk are started.
The volreattach command is called from the voldiskadm
menus as part of disk recovery.
The volreattach utility tries to find a disk with a disk
group and disk ID matching that of the disk(s) being reattached.
If the matching disk is found, the reattach operation
may still fail if the original cause (or some other
cause) for the disk failure still exists.
A zero exit status is returned if it is possible to perform
a reattach. Otherwise, non-zero is returned.
