Solaris Volume Manager: How to Recover Lost Diskset/Metaset after Hostname Change or Device Path Changes and Message "no such set" (Doc ID 1007877.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2017

Applies to:

Sun Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) - Version 11.9.0 to 11.11 [Release 11.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)

Symptoms

The symptom observed is that when you try to check or to take the ownership of a SVM diskset which existed prior to the hostname or device path change, "no such set" is reported.

Example:

 

Changes

After a hostname change or some device paths changes, none of the disksets in the server are available.

When you connect storage from a different system this behavior could also occur.
