1) Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) commands, metastat and metadevadm, hang or do not complete.
Running truss on the hanging metadevadm command:
# truss -aefdD -vall -wall -rall -ua.out -o /var/tmp/metadevadm-l-r.truss.out metadevadm -l -r
Shows that the hang occurs in the open() system call on file "/dev/.devlink_db".
Here is an abbreviated output from truss showing the point where the open() system call was hanging and then broken with a <ctrl>-C signal.
The SVM SMF service "system/mdmonitor:default" executes the "metadevadm -l -r" command, which is shown to hang in symptom 1 above.
