[solved] How to blink faulty disk in Solaris hardware?

Hi Guys,

One of two disks in my solaris machine has failed, the name is disk0, this is SUN physical sparc machine
But I work remotely, so people working near that physical server are not that technical, so from OS command prompt can run some command to bink faulty disk at front panel of Server.

What kind of hardware is it?

like bartus11 mentioned, this can vary server to server.

In my experience, on newer Sun.Oracle machines, unconfiguring the disk using cfgadm (if possible) will switch the LED to indicate the drive is 'safe to remove'.

Its sun4u Sun Fire V210

But Oracle Engineer said that it is hot swappable.

Moreover do I need to do metadetach and metaclear before removing the old disk? as the disks are mirrored.

I think I can directly remove old disk and insert new disk right?

Please advise, I really want to know this.

Did you just recently become an admin for that server? Maybe it would be best to ask Oracle Engineer to provide you the steps necessary to replace the faulty disk on that server as any mistake could be fatal to the server and applications running there.

Agreed... And 'hot-pluggable' is subtly, crucially different from 'can be unplugged without properly warning the server'.

If you have a service contract, the caseowner should provide a todo list for the intervention. If there is no action plan, ask the caseowner for help.

Outputs of metastat und format would be helpfull for detailed advice on your problem. If you have explorer installed, you should provide an explorer output to the caseowner.
