 Advisory Information

RELEASE DATE: 11 October 2005


In a TruCluster environment, performing LSM disk commands along with addvol, rmvol, or cfsmgr commands can cause non-rootdg LSM disk groups to become disabled. If this happens, until the next LSM restart, the LSM disk group is no longer viewable via commands such as "volprint" and I/O to its volumes will fail.


The following versions are affected:

  • HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1B-2/PK4
  • HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1A PK6

HP is releasing the following Early Release Patch kits (ERPs) publicly for use by any customer. The ERP kits use dupatch to install and will not install over any Customer Specific Patches (CSPs) that have file intersections with the ERP..
