Here's the scoop:
I only had one respondent to my question. Thanks Kris Briscoe for giving me some
After perusing the man pages a bit more, I found that vxconfigd uses the
contents of file "volboot" to find disks in rootdg. Although I didn't mention
this, this system only has rootdg disk group. Armed with this info, I did the
1) vxdctl stop
2) restored /etc/vx/volboot from my level 0 backup
3) restored /dev/vx as well but I'm thinking I didn't need to because vxconfigd
recreates this from volboot. But just to be safe...
4) vxconfigd -d
5) vxdctl enable
And voila! The disk group and volume structure reappeared. I remade the mount
points and then I copied my old /etc/vfstab in place.
End of heart failure.
