After system reboot, some physical volumes for the volume group.  Tools such as pvdisplay, lvdisplay, or vgdisplay error out for this volume group.

The LUN's are presented to the system and are visible.

# /usr/sbin/vgdisplay -vv

Unlocking /var/lock/lvm/V_SAN-HSDB51D-3


This can occur after any system reboot.
