ProcedureHow to Check the Status of a Disk Set


    Use one of the following methods to check the status of a disk set.

    • From the Enhanced Storage tool within the Solaris Management Console, open the Disk Sets node. Right-click the Disk Set you want to monitor, then choose Properties from the menu. For more information, see the online help.

    • Use the metaset command to view disk set status.

      See metaset(1M) for more information.

      Note –

      Disk set ownership is only shown on the owning host.

Example 21–6 Checking the Status of a Specified Disk Set

red# metaset -s blue

Set name = blue, Set number = 1

Host                Owner
  idiom             Yes 

Drive               Dbase
  c1t6d0             Yes 
  c2t6d0             Yes 

The metaset command with the -s option followed by the name of the blue disk set displays status information for that disk set. By issuing the metaset command from the owning host, idiom, it is determined that idiom is in fact the disk set owner. The metaset command also displays the disks in the disk set.

The metaset command by itself displays the status of all disk sets.
