There are several auxiliary flags that VxVM uses to maintain a disk's status or preferential use. All of them can be set and reset by the administrator, and some are maintained automatically.

If you look at the following output, you will see some unusual states noted on the right-hand side, as well as two "broken" disk media, as you know them from the troubleshooting chapter. In fact, the latter two disks (adg01 and adg06) were simply offlined while deported, then the disk group was re-imported and thus the error triggered.
