Lightbulb Problem with DiskSuite replicas

Good morning,
I have Solstice disk suite installed on my server.
One disk broke so I sostitute it.
A replica was present on this disk.
I had delete and then recreate it with commands metadb -d and metadb -a.
Now when I inquire for the status of replicas I see this:

stp11# metadb -i
flags first blk block count
a m p luo 16 1034 /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s5
a u 16 1034 /dev/dsk/c1t9d0s3
a p luo 16 1034 /dev/dsk/c1t11d0s0

Replica of slice c1t9d0s3 has't "l" and "0" attributes like others.
I still tried to delete and recreate it but nothing.
Anyone knows how I can do for having attributes "luo" also for this replica?

metadb -i
flags first blk block count
a m p luo 16 1034 /dev/dsk/c0t0d0s5
a u 16 1034 /dev/dsk/c1t9d0s3
a p luo 16 1034 /dev/dsk/c1t11d0s0

Since you did a metadb -i, you should have noted what the flags mean:

l - locator for this replica was read successfully
u - replica is up to date
o - replica active PRIOR to last mddb configuration change

Since you made a addition, it won't have the 'o' flag since it wasn't ACTIVE PRIOR to the last change. As far as the system is concerned, the replica is up to date. A reboot will put all the flags you are looking for on /dev/dsk/c1t9d0s3 - I don't believe I've ever seen any way to get them on there any other way and I found nothing on Sunsolve that was helpful.
