# These options will be preserved across package upgrade.

# cat /etc/vx/gms.config

Solution

Modify ODM and GMS configuration files and change attributes ODM_START & GMS_START to 1

# cat /etc/vx/odm.config

# For example
# MOUNT_OPTS=nosmartsync,nocluster
# These options will be preserved across package upgrade.
MOUNT_OPTS=
ODM_START=1

# cat /etc/vx/gms.config
GMS_START=1

Start ODM and GMS service in correct sequence

# /etc/init.d/vxodm start
