Solstice DiskSuite 4.2.1 Reference Guide


A shared diskset, or simply diskset, is a set of shared disk drives containing metadevices and hot spares that can be shared exclusively but not at the same time by two hosts. Currently, disksets are only supported on SPARCstorage Array disks.

A diskset provides for data redundancy and availability. If one host fails, the other host can take over the failed host's diskset. (This type of configuration is known as a failover configuration.)

For more information, see Chapter 5, Disksets.
