"rootvg is locked" Error When Running a mksysb


OS Level: AIX Version 4.2
Type/Model: Unspecified


The user is receiving an error stating that the rootvg is locked when attempting to run a mksysb.


To unlock the rootvg, enter the following command:
   # chvg -u rootvg
If the mksysb still fails, the error may be indicative of a kernel problem. An AIX support specialist should be contacted.
