Subject: Problem with uninstalling vxvm

I'm having problem uninstalling vxvm v3.1.1 on a server before upgrading
it to Solaris 8. Here is what I've done:

1. Remove mirrors for the 2 volumes (rootvol & swapvol).
There're no other volumes on the rootdisk.
2. Run vxunroot

As soon as I run vxunroot, I get the following error message:

The vxunroot operation cannot proceed. 
  Disk c0t0d0 does not have a suitable SWAP partition to use.
  Perhaps the SWAPVOL plex is not the original one created by 
  vxrootmir or not the original one created when the rootdisk
  was encapsulated; or perhaps the SWAP partition no longer 
  exists on this disk.

Indeed swapvol plex on rootdisk was removed some time ago
and recreated by mirroring from rootmirror.

How do I get over this hurdle? Any suggestions will be gratefully
