question on SVM

Hi All,

Can anybody please let me know SVM equivalent command for veritas "vxdisk -o alldgs list". Actually I am trying to see all devices attached to the box irrespective of their status ( whether imported or deported/exported ).

Thanks in Advance.

RE: question on SVM

metastat -p

This will give you a list of all the active metadevices and hot spares.

RE: question on SVM

metastat alone will give you more information. metastat -p gives more of a quick configuration overview of what you have set up.

metastat -i gives you information on your metastate replicas. Without these you are dead in the water.

Do not try to compare this to Veritas. SVM is it's own beast.

Format or iostat -E will give you all drives attached to the system. Metastat is only going to give you information for drives included in SVM configuration. It is not like Veritas vxdisk list which tells you all devices even if they are not included in Veritas.

Hope this helps.
