– replace disk physically
– connect new disk
– on veritas volume manager, initialize the new disk.
– and than by GUI veritas volume manager replicate the failed disk on diskgroup information
– after that, this volume not running as mirror. to run it as mirror do the below step.
check the plex name of your failed disk.
use vxprint command to show information about plex of the diskgroup
and than use vxmend command

#vxmend -g group_name on plex_name
#vxmend -g group_name fix clean plex_name
and than you can check the mirror disk will be syncronice.
