When presenting new disk(s) to a server they show as offline in the VERITAS Enterprise Administrator (VEA) gui, however may allow various operations on the disks and give different errors.
When trying to do "vxdisk list" you may receive error of "v-40-49408-1".
If you have the option to do "New Dynamic Disk Group", you may receive error of "Specified disk is not ready or usable".
These issues have been observed on disks with an unrecognised original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partition or a partition that is not recognised by Microsoft Windows operating systems.
