    • From the Enhanced Storage tool within the Solaris Management Console, open the Volumes node, then view the status of the volumes. Right-click a transactional volume and choose Properties for more detailed status information. For more information, see the online help.

    • Use the metastat command.

      For more information, see the metastat(1M) man page.
