NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       volreattach  - Reattaches disk drives that have once again
       become accessible

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sbin/volreattach [-rb] [accessname...]

       /usr/sbin/volreattach -c  accessname

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

EXIT CODES    [Toc]    [Back]

       A  zero  exit status is returned if it is possible to perform
 a reattach.  Otherwise, non-zero is returned.
