Last updated on MAY 01, 2023

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 HW1 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 10.0]
Sun Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) - Version 11.9.0 to 11.10.0 [Release 11.0]

In this document, we will provide an example of how to replace a failed disk drive which is mirrored by Solaris Volume Manager
for a x86 platform. This example is for a scsi, internal boot disk (Most simple mirrors are of the root drive). It can be used
for non-root/OS metadevices as well. Simply skip the steps appropriate only for the boot partition/slice of an (OS) disk..

This document is for x86 architecture, if you have a SPARC system then refer to:
<Document 1469821.1> Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) SPARC How to Replace a Failed, SCSI Disk, Mirrored with SVM

Our given configuration is a multi-partitioned root disk. We used metastat -c to document the layout.
The associated (File Systems) have been added to the output for clarity.

You can see that c1t0d0 is mirrored to c1t1d0.
