Unmount the file system that uses the volume.
To rename the volume, use one of the following methods:
From the Enhanced Storage tool within the Solaris Management Console, open the Volumes node and select the volume you want to rename. Right-click the icon and choose the Properties option, then follow the instructions on screen. For more information, see the online help.
Use the following format of the metarename command:
metarename old-volume-name new-volume-name
old-volume-name is the name of the existing volume.
new-volume-name is the new name for the existing volume.
See metarename(1M) for more information.
Edit the /etc/vfstab file to refer to the new volume name, if necessary.
Remount the file system.
# umount /home # metarename d10 d100 d10: has been renamed to d100 (Edit the /etc/vfstab file so that the file system references the new volume) # mount /home
In this example, the volume d10 is renamed to d100. Because d10 contains a mounted file system, the file system must be unmounted before the rename can occur. If the volume is used for a file system with an entry in the /etc/vfstab file, the entry must be changed to reference the new volume name. For example, the following line:
/dev/md/dsk/d10 /dev/md/rdsk/d10 /docs ufs 2 yes -
should be changed to:
/dev/md/dsk/d100 /dev/md/rdsk/d100 /docs ufs 2 yes -
If you have an existing mirror or transactional volume, you can use the metarename -x command to remove the mirror or transactional volume and keep data on the underlying volume. For a transactional volume, as long as the master device is a volume (RAID 0, RAID 1, or RAID 5 volume), you can keep data on that volume.
