Re: Pb LSM mirroring


1) Make sure your disk rz0 is not a part of any domain. you can check up with /sbin/advfs/advscan rz0

2) Then first run disklabel -z rz0

3) Then you can write the label. If I am not wrong then you must want to create disk rz0 as bootable disk. You can give command as

disklabel -rw -t advfs rz0

Re: Pb LSM mirroring

While you most probably booted from partition rz0a, the V4.0 kernel will keep this partiton open as long as the system keeps running, since this is the root from which the system booted.

Solution : shutdown the system and boot from rz1 (>>> boot dka1)
