Solaris Volume Manager Administration Guide

Disk Set Name Requirements

Disk set volume names are similar to other Solaris Volume Manager component names. However, the disk set name is included as part of the name. For example, volume path names include the disk set name after /dev/md/ and before the actual volume name in the path.

The following table shows some example disk set volume names.

Table 18–1 Example Volume Names for Disk Sets


Block volume d0 in disk set blue


Block volume d1 in disk set blue


Raw volume d126 in disk set blue


Raw volume d127 in disk set blue

Similarly, hot spare pools have the disk set name as part of the hot spare name.
