Removing ODM information of a logical Volume

Removing ODM information of a logical volume

Sometimes situations occur where a logical volume is deleted, but the ODM is not up to date. E.g. when lsvg doesn't show you the logical volume, but the lslv command can still show information about the logical volume.

To resolve this issue, first try: synclvodm -v [volume group name].

If this doesn't work, try this: (in the example below logical volume hd7 is used)

Save the ODM information of the logical volume:
odmget -q name=hd7 CuDv | tee -a /tmp/CuDv.hd7.out
odmget -q name=hd7 CuAt | tee -a /tmp/CuAt.hd7.out
(If you mess things up, you can allways use odmadd /tmp/[filename] to restore the ODM information).

Delete the ODM information of the logical volume:
odmdelete -o CuDv -q name=hd7
odmdelete -o CuAt -q name=hd7

Then, remove the device entry of the logical volume in /dev directory (if present at all).
