Last updated on DECEMBER 06, 2021

Applies to:

Solaris Cluster - Version 3.0 to 4.4 [Release 3.0 to 4.4]

The following error message can come up after a wrong disk replacement in Solaris Cluster:

Example A) for a internal replaced SCSI drive:
/usr/cluster/bin/scdidadm:  Device ID for device "/dev/rdsk/c0t1d0" does not match physical disk's ID.
Warning: The drive might have been replaced.


Example B) for SC 3.x and shared FCAL storage using either Veritas Volume Manager or Solstice DiskSuite:
device id for '/dev/rdsk/c2t23d0' does not match physical disk's id.
The drive may have been replaced device id for '/dev/rdsk/c1t23d0' does not match physical disk's id.

In this example the command luxadm remove_device & luxadm insert_device in A5X00  was forgotten.


Example C) for shared disk which are mapped from primary/control domain to guest domain. The disk was replaced in primary domain and messages came up in guest domain where Solaris Cluster is installed:
Node1 Cluster.CCR: [ID 551094 daemon.warning] reservation warning(node_join) - Unable to open device /dev/did/rdsk/d9s2, will retry in 2 seconds


The error message is similar for each wrong replaced disk drive independent if the disk drive is shared or local.


The disk replacement procedure was not followed correctly.
