After a drive replaement sd0, is there an iostat command that will clear the errors. I am told only a reboot will do that. Looked at the man page and not finding it or have over looked it ............ please advise and thank in advance ..

I searched for it and this is what I have found, hope it helps:

This will only work for Solaris10 +, all other reboot is needed.
