Use the metastat command to view the status of the RAID-1 volume and associated submirrors.
# metastat mirror-name
Use one of the following methods to replace a slice in a submirror.
From the Enhanced Storage tool within the Solaris Management Console, open the Volumes node. Choose the mirror. Then, choose Action⇒Properties and click the Submirror tab. Follow the onscreen instructions. For more information, see the online help.
Use the following form of the metareplace command to replace a slice in a submirror:
# metareplace mirror-name component-name
mirror-name is the name of the volume to create.
component-name specifies the name of the component to replace.
Specifies the name of the volume to create
Specifies the name of the component to replace
See the following examples and the metainit(1M) man page for more information.
The following example illustrates how to replace a failed slice when the system is not configured to use hot spare pools for the automatic replacement of failed disks. See Chapter 16, Hot Spare Pools (Overview) for more information about using hot spare pools.
# metastat d6 d6: Mirror Submirror 0: d16 State: Okay Submirror 1: d26 State: Needs maintenance ... d26: Submirror of d6 State: Needs maintenance Invoke: metareplace d6 c0t2d0s2 <new device> ... # metareplace d6 c0t2d0s2 c0t2d2s2 d6: device c0t2d0s2 is replaced with c0t2d2s2
The metastat command confirms that mirror d6 has a submirror, d26, with a slice in the “Needs maintenance” state. The metareplace command replaces the slice as specified in the “Invoke” line of the metastat output with another available slice on the system. The system confirms that the slice is replaced, and starts resynchronizing the submirror.
