    Uncorrectable write error vxvm:vxio problem

    807559
      I am running Solaris 9 and have recently run into a problem where the system will report the following:

      Uncorrectable write error on RAID-5 vol01 block 5 vxio:[ID xxxx kern.warning] WARNING vxvm:vxio: RAID-5

      Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

          see if this helps you out -

          there are other possibilities, but failing/failed disk sounds probably the first check - also iostat -nE should point to hardware/transaction based errors

            This error will occur is the disk is dead, dying or has bad blocks (Assuming there are no connectivity/bus issues).

            If the disk is dead or dying, replace the disk.

            If it is due to bad blocks -- you should see the blocks in the messages file. Move the data off to another subdisk, if possible. Otherwise back up the data, unmount, stop the volume, delete the volume and associated plexes and sd, mark the block/blocks as bad blocks using the format command, recreate the volume and recover from the backups.
