I have a little probleme with our Solaris 2.4 & Veritas 2.0 Volume
Through a stupid mistake I have 3 weeks ago deleted 2 files in the /etc:
name_to_major and name_to_system (rm na*) (yes, wrong terminalwindows).
That was no problem (say: didn't discover it) until I tried to reboot
the sparc20: the system didn't come up, always complaining that the
files where missing, than rebooting.
Great! Called the Sun Hotline, get the advice to boot from CD and copy

was only the rootdg volume. But we had another raid 5 stack!
It's seems that veritas can't see it. It doesn't show up at vxprint, but

hardwarefailure or something, and - as far as I understand that - it
should be allready there.
Has anyone seen this problem before? Any tips/help/suggestion?
