I've got a problem that I have some clues on how to fix, but not
enough to go ahead for fear of making things worse.
I have a few volumes that are on a new fileserver. I've just moved
them, but when vos ex them I get the following:
Could not fetch the information about volume 536919169 from the server
: No such device
Volume does not exist on server <fileserver1> as indicated by the VLDB
Dump only information from VLDB
number of sites -> 1
server <fileserver1> partition /vicepa RW Site
The thing is, I didn't move them to <fileserver1>, but rather to
<fileserver2>. I have a third fileserver, and the volumes there
It looks like the VLDB is out of sync, but is syncvldb the option? I
got the idea that it would assume the VLDB is correct and remove an
entry for a volume, not talk to a given fileserver and fix the entry.
The volume in question is indeed on <fileserver2>, which I can see
