Issue Description
Is it a normal phenomenon that the link status of some disks mounted to the AIX operating system becomes Failed after optical fibers are removed and reinserted?

Solution
Yes, it is a normal phenomenon. After optical fibers are removed and reinserted, no I/O request is sent to these disks, so their link status is Failed. Once I/O requests are sent to these disk, their link status automatically changes to Enabled.
