Solution: There was no backup because it was a fresh install. I
reinstalled the Volume Manager to bring back missing files. But i
forgot to reinstall the Volume Manager patch (106191). Without
this patch the controller hardware is not recognized. The license
is generated automatically by vxinstall on detection of some
hardware (the A5000 Disk Array in my case).
