Goal

In this document, we will replace a failed disk drive which is mirrored by Solaris Volume Manager.

This example is for a internal scsi boot disk. The commands to remove and replace (warm swap) the drive are bundled within all the SVM steps.

This document is for SPARC architecture,

 

Here, you can see the fault of the drive. Utilities such as format, /var/adm/messages and metastat are reviewed.
