To associate a hot spare pool with a RAID-5 volume or submirror, use one of the following methods:
From the Enhanced Storage tool within the Solaris Management Console, open the Volumes and choose a volume. Choose Action⇒Properties. Then, choose the Hot Spare Pool panel. Finally, choose Attach HSP. For more information, see the online help.
Use the following form of the metaparam command:
# metaparam -h hot-spare-pool component
Specifies to modify the named hot spare pooll.
Specifies the name of the hot spare pool.
Specifies the name of the submirror or RAID-5 volume to which the hot spare pool is being associated.
See the metaparam(1M) man page for more information.
In the following example, the -h option associates a hot spare pool, hsp100, with two submirrors, d10 and d11, of mirror, d0. The metastat command shows that the hot spare pool is associated with the submirrors.
# metaparam -h hsp100 d10 # metaparam -h hsp100 d11 # metastat d0 d0: Mirror Submirror 0: d10 State: Okay Submirror 1: d11 State: Okay ... d10: Submirror of d0 State: Okay Hot spare pool: hsp100 ... d11: Submirror of d0 State: Okay Hot spare pool: hsp100 ...
# metaparam -h hsp001 d10 # metastat d10 d10: RAID State: Okay Hot spare pool: hsp001 ...
