A mounted file system uses a log device that is located on the reverted disk

Article ID: SS0003 When a log device that is used by other file systems is located on the reverted volume's physical disk, a revert restore operation fails for an SAP Oracle transactional file system volume.

Symptom

A revert restore operation of an SAP transactional volume fails with the following logged errors:

CVMA.log on client

 ########## CVSnapOSUtilUNIX::prepareRevert(SMVolSnapInfo &) Added mount path /oracle/*/* to re-mount after revert with device name ''/dev/p093sp3vg2lv20'' and lvdevice ''/dev/p093sp3vg2lv20''

########## CVSnapOSUtilUNIX::prepareRevert(SMVolSnapInfo &) [CVSnapOSUtilUNIX.cpp:5013] Mounted file system(s) uses log device located on reverting disk.

The revert will fail while this file system is mounted.

backint_oracle.log on client

CVMMSnapAPI::processVolSnapOperation() - VolSnaps Operation Failed. Status [-1] Err [60655:Mounted file system(s) uses log device located on reverting disk.

The revert will fail while this file system is mounted.]

Cause

Other transactional file systems have log devices that are located on the physical disk that hosts the volume that is being reverted. The disk cannot be unmounted for the revert restore operation because volumes are still mounted.

Resolution

Relocate (at least temporarily) to another physical disk any or all log devices that are located on the physical disk that is hosting the target volume that is being reverted.

You must perform the relocation before the revert restore operation can be initiated.
