Checking replicas of the metadevice state database

root@solaris # metadb
flags first blk block count
M p 16 unknown /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s4
M p 8208 unknown /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s4
M p 16400 unknown /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s4

a p l 16400 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s4

a p l 8208 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s5
a p l 16400 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s5

Deleting metadevice state database on the slices of the bad disk. First slice 4

root@solaris # metadb -d /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s4
metadb: solaris: Bad address

root@solaris # metadb
flags first blk block count
M p 16 unknown /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s5
M p 8208 unknown /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s5
M p 16400 unknown /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s5
a m p lu 16 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s4
a p l 8208 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s4
a p l 16400 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s4
a p l 16 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s5
a p l 8208 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s5
a p l 16400 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s5

And then in slice 5

root@solaris # metadb -d /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s5
metadb: solaris: Bad address

root@solaris # metadb
flags first blk block count
a m p lu 16 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s4
a p l 8208 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s4
a p l 16400 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s4
a p l 16 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s5
a p l 8208 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s5
a p l 16400 8192 /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s5
