        After spending the better part of a day installing DiskSuite
4.1 on my new Sparc5 running Solaris 2.6 and configureing a mirror set
consisting of two 4.1g drives I have hit a wall when it comes to
mounting this newly created set. Can anyone help me determine what the
device name is for this assembly of drives so I can mount this new
object into the filesystem.

        Any help would be appreciated.

What does your md.tab file look like, or failing that, what does your
output from metastat-p look like?

If you're using metatool to do the setup it lists the device in there
(usually /dev/md/dsk/d? where '?' is 0-9).

Also remember to newfs the device before trying to mount it.

See metastat(1m).

The manual pages are in /usr/opt/SUNWmd/man
You may need to set MANPATH to include this directory if
you haven't yet done so. The sh mechanism would be:

   $ MANPATH=${MANPATH}:/usr/opt/SUNWmd/man
   $ export MANPATH

MANPATH has the same syntax as the PATH environment variable.

The names reported by metastat (ie. "d0") exactly correspond
to the /dev entry in /dev/md/dsk/d<x> or /dev/md/rdsk/d<x>
There will be entries in that directory for metadevices which
do not exist. metastat's output is authoritative, not the
presence of the node in /dev.
