Solaris Volume Manager Administration Guide

Creating a Volume Configuration File With the metassist Command

By running the metassist command with the -d argument, you can generate an XML-based volume configuration file that specifies the volumes and their components in detail, including all options and relevant information about the volumes. Reviewing this file helps you to understand the configuration that the metassist command recommends. Making careful changes to this file can also enable you to fine-tune the configuration, then to use the volume configuration file as input to the metassist command to actually create volumes.
