Top-Down Volume Creation Implementation With Disk Sets

The metassist command uses Solaris Volume Manager disk sets to manage volumes and available disks for top-down volume creation. For any given top-down volume creation process, all the disks used as building blocks must be either in the disk set or available to add to the disk set. You can use the top-down creation process to create volumes in different disk sets. However, the disks and components that are available are constrained by disk set functionality.
