Solaris Express Developer Edition What's New

Support for Descriptive Names for Metadevices and Hot-spare Pools

This system performance enhancement is new in the Solaris Express 5/06 release.

The rules for defining names for metadevices and hot-spare pools have been extended to allow the use of alphanumeric characters. Previously, names for metadevices were restricted to the form “dXXX”, while hot-spare pools had to use the form “hspYYY”.

For more information about the acceptable names for metadevices and hot-spare pools, see the Solaris Volume Manager Administration Guide.
