Strange Disksuite 4.0 Error

Strange Disksuite 4.0 Error

Post by Matthew Zahor » Fri, 24 Jan 1997 04:00:00

Hello all,

  Upon rebooting my Solaris 2.5 x86 Disksuite 4.0 box this morning, I saw
the following error:

metasync: hermes: /dev/md/dsk/d0: not a metadevice

  A metastat shows:

[hermes]:2:19pm:/usr/opt/SUNWmd/sbin# ./metastat
metastat: hermes: /dev/md/dsk/d0: not a metadevice

  I don't want to reset the box lest I lose the entire RAID5 array.  It
has 102580-10 ODS patches applied.  I can still access the files on the
array without question.

  The reset was to add:

set ncsize = 5000

  to /etc/system. (to correct a DNLC lookup of 34% - it's up to 69% now)

  Is it safe to reset the machine?  Am I doing more harm leaving it

  Also, is there a e-mail contact within Sun.  My "authorized service
provider" did not have the expertise to field this question and could not
provide better contacts.

1. 2.5.1 -> 2.6 & DiskSuite [Was: Solaris 2.6 & Solstice DiskSuite 4.0]

Could someone please clarify this.  I have a UE2 running 2.5.1 and wish
to upgrade the machine to 2.6 by wiping the interal drives and doing
a fresh install of 2.6.  The machine has 8 external drives that are
configured as pieces of several RAID 0 meta-devices.  I would like to
avoid having to backup and reconfigure these meta-devices.  Is this
possible?  How do I go about upgrading disksuite before hand, and what
does this accomplish?  Thanks for your help.
