Messages Displayed When Dragging an Object

The following messages are displayed when you are dragging an object inside the Metadevice Editor window. An explanation of the message follows the sample output.


Concatenations must be part of a mirror
for hot spare pools to function

You are dragging a Hot Spare Pool over a concatenation. This message is telling you that the Concat/Stripe must be part of a Mirror or the Hot Spare Pool you are dropping will not work.


Drop a concatenation into mirror dn

You are dragging a Concat/Stripe over the specified Mirror. If you drop the Concat/Stripe, it will become part of that Mirror.


Drop a concatenation to replace submirror dn

You are dragging a Concat/Stripe over the specified submirror. Drop the Concat/Stripe inside the rectangle that contains the submirror to make the replacement.


Drop a hot spare pool to assign it to concatenation dn

You are dragging a Hot Spare Pool over the specified concatenation. By dropping the Hot Spare Pool into the Concat/Stripe, it becomes associated with that concatenation.


Drop here to associate a hot spare pool with this RAID

You are dragging a Hot Spare Pool over the specified RAID device. If you drop the Hot Spare Pool, it will become associated with the RAID device.


Drop a metadevice or slice into trans log

You are dragging a metadevice or slice over a Trans device. If you drop the metadevice or slice, it will become part of the Trans device.


Drop a metadevice or slice into master

You are dragging a metadevice or slice over the Master of a Trans device. Drop the object into the Master to add it to the device.


Drop a slice into hot spare pool dn

You are dragging a slice over the specified Hot Spare Pool. Drop the slice to add it to the Hot Spare Pool.


Drop a slice into RAID dn

You are dragging an unused slice over the specified RAID device. If you drop the slice, it will become part of the RAID device.


Drop a slice of the same size to replace the current slice

You are dragging a slice either over a committed RAID device or over a submirror that has more than one submirror. You can drop the new slice on the existing slice to make a replacement.


Drop a slice to replace current slice

You are dragging an unused slice over a Concat/Stripe, RAID, or Trans device. To replace the slice you are over, release the middle button and drop the slice.


Drop a slice into stripe dn or commit

You are dragging an unused slice over a Concat/Stripe that has one or more slices. You can populate the Concat/Stripe with additional slices or select the Concat/Stripe (stripe) and execute a commit.


Drop a slice to add new replicas; you should have at least
three replicas.

You are dragging a slice over the MetaDB object. Drop the slice to create another replica. DiskSuite requires the configuration have a minimum of three slices in the MetaDB object.


Drop at least one concatenation into mirror dn 

You are dragging a Concat/Stripe over the specified Mirror. You must drop a minimum of one Concat/Stripe into the specified Mirror.


Drop at least one slice into stripe dn

You are dragging an unused slice over a Concat/Stripe that has zero slices. You must populate the Concat/Stripe (stripe) with a minimum of one slice.


Drop at least three to create the RAID parity group

You are dragging an unused slice over the specified RAID device. You must drop a minimum of three slices into the RAID device.


Drop a slice to add a new replica.

You are dragging a slice over the MetaDB object. Drop the slice to create another replica.


You cannot add more concatenations;
mirror dn already has three submirrors

You are dragging a Concat/Stripe over the specified Mirror. You cannot add another Concat/Stripe (submirror) to a Mirror that already has three submirrors.


You cannot add slices to committed stripe dn

You are dragging an unused slice over a committed Concat/Stripe. DiskSuite does not permit you to add slices to a committed Concat/Stripe (stripe).


You cannot replace in-use slices in a hot spare pool

You are dragging an unused slice over a slice that is in use in a committed Hot Spare Pool. You cannot drop the new slice on a slice in a Hot Spare Pool that is currently in use.


You cannot replace objects in committed RAID dn

You are dragging an object over the specified RAID device. Because the device is committed, you cannot make replacements.


You cannot replace slices in a committed stripe unless
it is part of a submirror

You are dragging a slice over a a committed Concat/Stripe. You cannot make changes to this metadevice, unless it is part of a submirror.


You cannot replace submirror dn when
mirror dn has only one submirror

You are dragging a submirror over the specified submirror. You cannot drop the submirror into the Mirror when there is only one submirror present.


You cannot replace slices in a committed trans device

You are dragging an unused slice over a slice that is in use as a Trans master or log. You cannot replace slices in a committed Trans device.
