Problem

Vxconfigd daemon logs error during system boot or during vxconfigd restart.

 

Error Message

vxvm:vxconfigd: [ID 567584 daemon.error] V-5-1-8645 Error in claiming /dev/rdsk/emcpower0c by NR list: No such device or address
vxvm:vxconfigd: [ID 278821 daemon.error] V-5-1-8645 Error in claiming /dev/rdsk/emcpower1c by NR list: No such device or address
 

 

Cause

These messages are logged due to stale device entries in Solaris device directory /dev/dsk and /dev/rdsk.

The device listed in the error message no longer exists,  which can be confirmed through Solaris format command.

# echo | format

 

Solution

To prevent these messages, remove the stale device entries in the Solaris device directories /dev/dsk and /dev/rdsk.

This can typically be accomplished with the command:

# devfsadm -C

or a reconfiguration reboot.
