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

(Doc ID 1462447.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 19, 2017

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]
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)

Symptoms

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

 

Changes

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.)
