ProcedureHow to Check the Status of State Database Replicas

  1. Become superuser.

  2. To check the status of state database replicas, use one of the following methods:

    • From the Enhanced Storage tool within the Solaris Management Console, open the State Database Replicas node to view all existing state database replicas. For more information, see the online help.

    • Use the metadb command to view the status of state database replicas. Add the -i option to display an explanation of the status flags, as shown in the following example. See the metadb(1M).

 r - replica does not have device relocation information
 o - replica active prior to last mddb configuration change
 u - replica is up to date
 l - locator for this replica was read successfully
 c - replica's location was in /etc/lvm/
 p - replica's location was patched in kernel
 m - replica is master, this is replica selected as input
 W - replica has device write errors
 a - replica is active, commits are occurring to this replica
 M - replica had problem with master blocks
 D - replica had problem with data blocks
 F - replica had format problems
 S - replica is too small to hold current data base
 R - replica had device read errors

A legend of all the flags follows the status. The characters in front of the device name represent the status. Uppercase letters indicate a problem status. Lowercase letters indicate an “Okay” status.
