Solaris Volume Manager Bugs

The following Solaris Volume Manager bugs apply to the Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 release.

Solaris Volume Manager Does Not Remove Devices Correctly If fdisk Does Not Have Valid Entries

The bcm_sata SATA HBA driver supports SATA disks and SATA ATAPI devices. The driver supports RD1000, which is a removable SATA ATAPI device. The volume manager (vold) does not create a node when the media in RD1000 does not have valid entries in fdisk. Therefore, the rmformat command does not perform as expected.

Workaround: Use the following workaround:

  1. Turn off the volume manager (vold).

    # /etc/init.d/volmgt stop
  2. Run the following commands as needed:

    • fdisk

    • rmformat

    • format

    • newfs

    • mount

  3. Restart the volume manager.

    # /etc/init.d/volmgt start

Solaris Volume Manager metattach Command Might Fail

If you have a Solaris Volume Manager mirrored root (/) file system in which the file system does not start on cylinder 0, all submirrors that you attach must also not start on cylinder 0.

If you attempt to attach a submirror starting on cylinder 0 to a mirror in which the original submirror does not start on cylinder 0, the following error message is displayed:

can't attach labeled submirror to an unlabeled mirror

Workaround: Choose one of the following workarounds:

Note - By default, the JumpStart installation process starts swap at cylinder 0 and the root (/) file system somewhere else on the disk. Common system administration practice is to start slice 0 at cylinder 0. Mirroring a default JumpStart installation with root on slice 0 but not cylinder 0 to a typical secondary disk with slice 0 that starts at cylinder 0 can cause problems. This mirroring results in an error message when you attempt to attach the second submirror. For more information about the default behavior of the Oracle Solaris installation programs, see the Oracle Solaris 10 Installation Guides.
