how to check for hardware layered raid in solaris 10 ?

hi all, will command metastats tell whether there is hardware layered raid ?

i intend to do patching and plug out one of the disks in case the one inside encountered issues.

What kind of server are you going to patch? Check if this command says something:
Code:
# raidctl -l
