Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) How to change replica size and the size of the partition that holds it

(Doc ID 1002650.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 19, 2017

Applies to:

Sun Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) - Version 11.9.0 to 11.10.0 [Release 11.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86 (32-bit)

Goal

When you add a disk or DID device in cluster to a metaset you can specify it's size with -l option. This will make the replica database size to the specified value in blocks. However the actual slice (s7) that holds the replica will remain the same default 6 Mb size regardless of how big you made the database. This Technical Instruction shows a possible work around.
