SUMMARY: RE: Disksuite 4.1 question

Apparently Disksuite 4.1 metatool would prefer there to be 3 copies of
the state database on 3 different controllers. Any less and it warns
you. It could be considered a bug as there is a difference of opinion
between the GUI metatool and the metadb command.

Pam Skillman at Sun mentioned a jumbo patch (104172-09), which I will
be adding as soon as I get chance, although it looks like it doesn't
change the warnings in metatool.

In response to questions generated by my question:

Disksuite 4.1 does allow you to store the state database inside
metadevices. Apparently 4.0 didn't let you.
To install Disksuite 4.1, I used admintool, browse->software,
edit->add, point it at the directory on the CD containing the software
and off you go. Or just do pkgadd all the packages if you know which
ones they are.

Thanks to:
