In this document, we will replace a failed disk drive which is mirrored by Solaris Volume Manager. This example is for a scsi, internal boot disk (Most simple mirrors are of the root drive). The overhead commands to remove and replace (warm swap) the drive are bundled within all the SVM steps.
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.
