No, that's not what I meant.
'gvinum start' loads the kernel module which in turn searches for
vinum-GEOMs and loads the configuration data. It doesn't change the
state of any gvinum item.
Try 'gvinum start <plex-name>' or within gvinum(8):
gvinum> start <plexname>
This (as far as I investigated :-)
a) initializes a newly created RAID5-plex or
b) recalculates parity informations on a degraded RAID5-plex with
a new replaced subdisk.
So, a 'gvinum start raid5.p0' initializes my RAID5-plex if newly
created. You can monitor the initialization process with subsequent
'gvinum list' commands.
If you degrade a RAID5-plex with 'camcontrol stop <diskname>' (in case
of SCSI-Disks) and 'repair' it afterwards with 'camcontrol start
<diskname>', the 'gvinum start raid5.p0' (my volume here is called
'raid5') command recalculates the parity and revives the subdisk which
was on disk <diskname>.
