Sysadmins use raidctl in order to check current raid volumes configuration and status information from Solaris. Under certain circumstances, raidctl may display inconsistent output.
When troubleshooting internal disk errors, sysadmin needs to rely on raidctl information to determine whether there is a hard disk that needs replacement.

Symptoms

 

Notice from above that both c0t0d0 and c0t2d0 are shown as they were configured from the same pair of disks (0.3.0 and 0.2.0). This is not a supported configuration; output is inconsistent !
