After issuing the commands you recommended, 253,5 appeared and the
systemvg is now OK. Thanks..
Now the problem appeared to be a JFS problem. For datavg, mapping seems
to be correct, LV information and the info from dmsetup seems to be equal.
If anybody in this list have experience and can lead me
- to view the contents of the raw device (/dev/datavg/snk2lv) with
- to get the filenames on the device (again with jfs-utils)
I will really appreciate..
Thank you for all your help....
