Mirror Issue AIX

I have 3 PV on my AIX server and the rootvg resides on hdisk0

# lspv
hdisk0          00cdfb543365cd2c                    rootvg          active
hdisk1          none                                           None
hdisk2          00cdfb548772e311                    None

Now when I run a mirror command I am getting this error
 # mirrorvg rootvg hdisk0 hdisk1
0516-304 getlvodm: Unable to find device id 00000000000000000000000000000000 in the Device
        Configuration Database.
0516-014 mirrorvg: []: The physical volume appears to belong to another
        volume group.
0516-1200 mirrorvg: Failed to mirror the volume group.

This server was rebuilt so there might be a volume group on hdisk1, How should I clean it up and mirror the disks

you must add the disk to rootvg before placing a mirror on it.


extendvg rootvg hdisk1

then continue with mirrorvg.

By the way, this hdisk1 has never been a member of a VG, since it doesn't carry a PVID (as opposed to hdisk2, which has indeed one).
