    Assisted Solution

    Cluster desynchronized, you need to migrate to one machine and repopulate cluster config.
    IBM Support may guide you thru easier way.

    Accepted Solution

    It would seem that the VG you are trying to use is in an HACMP cluster and is being used in enhanced-concurrent mode and that not all nodes are available.
