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. Click the right mouse button on the Disk Set you want to monitor. Then choose Properties from the menu. For more information, see the online help.

    • Use the following form of the metaset command to view disk set status.

      # metaset -s diskset-name

      See the metaset(1M) man page for more information.

      Note –

      Disk set ownership is only shown on the owning host.

Example 19–6 Checking the Status of a Specified Disk Set

The following example shows the metaset command with the -s option followed by the name of the disk set, blue. The output from this command displays status information for that disk set. The output indicates that host1 is the disk set owner. The metaset command also displays the disks in the disk set.

red# metaset -s blue

Set name = blue, Set number = 1

Host                Owner
  host1             Yes 

Drive               Dbase
  c1t6d0             Yes 
  c2t6d0             Yes 

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