All Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) Commands Error With /dev/md/admin: No such file or directory (Doc ID 1462447.1)

Last updated on MAY 05, 2016

Applies to:

Solstice DiskSuite Software - Version 4.2 to 4.2.1 [Release 4.0]
Sun Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) - Version 11.9.0 to 11.11 [Release 11.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After a successful install of Solaris Volume Manager, all SVM commands are failing with the same error. For example.



Solstice DiskSuite (SDS) may of just been installed on the system. SDS came on its own installation CD for Solaris 7 and Solaris 8. This could be a contributing factor to the problem. (With Solaris 9, SVM was bundled into the install of solaris.)
