This document provides the proper steps to replace a disk in a Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) mirror that is not failed, but is reporting an unacceptable amount of errors. (For example, hard errors in 'iostat -E', predictive failure analysis exceeded, Sense Code ASC 0x5D, and/or uncorrectable block errors.)

Even though the disk is reporting an unacceptable amount of errors, this document only provides the necessary steps for replacing a disk that is reporting 'Okay' in 'metastat' output.
