NAME

  volreattach -	Reattaches disk	drives that have once again become accessible

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/volreattach	[-rb] [accessname...]

  /usr/sbin/volreattach	-c  accessname

OPTIONS

  The volreattach utility has the following options:

  -r  Calls the	volrecover utility to attempt to recover stale plexes of any
      volumes on the failed disk.

  -b  Performs the reattach operation in the background.

  -c  Checks whether a reattach	is possible. No	operation is performed,	but
      the name of the disk group and disk media	name at	which the disk can be
      reattached is displayed.

DESCRIPTION

  The volreattach utility attempts to reattach disks using the same disk
  group	and media names	they had before	detachment.

  This operation may be	necessary if a disk has	a transient failure, or	if
  some disk drivers are	unloaded or unloadable when the	Logical	Storage
  Manager is started, causing disks to enter the failed	state.

  If the problem is fixed, the volreattach command can be used to reattach
  the disks without plexes being flagged as stale, as long as the reattach
  happens before any volumes on	the disk are started.

  The volreattach command is called from the voldiskadm	menus as part of disk
  recovery.

  The volreattach utility tries	to find	a disk with a disk group and disk ID
  matching that	of the disk(s) being reattached. If the	matching disk is
  found, the reattach operation	may still fail if the original cause (or some
  other	cause) for the disk failure still exists.

EXIT CODES

  A zero exit status is	returned if it is possible to perform a	reattach.
  Otherwise, non-zero is returned.
