Symptoms

In Sun Storage 2500, 2500-M2, and 6000 Arrays with firmware 7.x, the Portable Virtual Disk feature offers the ability to move a Virtual Disk (or Volume Group) between storage arrays by logically exporting the Virtual Disk from the source storage array, physically moving the disk drives to the destination storage array and logically importing the Virtual Disk into the destination array. (See the Sun Storage Common Array Manager Array Administration Guide : "Moving a Virtual Disk Between Arrays").
 
A Virtual Disk export may fail with an error message as below.

ERROR DATA

Command sent to controller in slot: B
Host name: myhostname
IP address: 10.10.10.10

Return code: Error 467 -
This return code can be returned from exportVolumeGroup. It will be returned if one or more of the VGs drives configuration database is invalid and unusable. A possible recovery is to remove the drive(s) one at a time and re-insert it back into the array to trigger database resynchronization. This is not guaranteed to work, however.
