Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) server panics continuously with 'vfs_mountroot: cannot remount root' due to missing replica/metadb information
(Doc ID 1500501.1)
Last updated on AUGUST 12, 2020
Applies to: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 (32-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
The root disks of the server are mirrored with Solaris Volume Manager software.
After the reboot the server can not boot and panics continuously with
"metadb -d" commands were done before the reboot to delete the latest replicas (metadb) on the disks
# metadb -i
==> nothing is returned
Another potential change causing such a problem is, that the server has been newly encapsulated in SVM,
but the default boot-device does not match the device that has been encapsulated.
