We had problem with one of the 12 disks installed on Sun Netra st D1000. We were not be able to detect the disk when rebooting the machine, when i tried to see what happened, the led for the disk was not on, so we just ignore the disk and assume it might had been broken.
The next day, as the disks is hot-pluggable system as it is written on Netra st D1000 Installation and Maintenance Manual (http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/805-7147
), following the manual, i removed the drive and plugged it back, the result : the led turned back ON.
And here is the problem, although the disk has been back alive, how do i detect the disk so i can use it back as before without rebooting the server machine ? As this is not a new disk, so all the configuration and the SCSI Id and everything is already there in the system, i just need to get it back and running.
Following the manual about how to add new disk (section: Performing the Software Configuration Procedures/To Add The Disk Drive), it didn't work well as well, however i can not try using vxctl command because the command is not found in the system.
Is there anybody here could help me out ? thanks in advance !
