Hi Guru's,

Lotsa Thanks to Eric van de Meerakker and Walter Heukels for their

It was a rather simple solution. Since there were no metadb's left, I
created new ones on the appropiate slices,
and copied the raid set into the (from the old, with the -k
option at the end.
So it looked like this:

d100 -r /dev/dsk/c2t1d0s0 /dev/dsk/c2t2d0s0 /dev/dsk/c2t3d0s0
/dev/dsk/c3t0d0s0 /dev/dsk/c3t1d0s0 \
        /dev/dsk/c4t0d0s0 /dev/dsk/c4t1d0s0 /dev/dsk/c4t2d0s0
/dev/dsk/c4t3d0s0 /dev/dsk/c5t0d0s0 \
        /dev/dsk/c5t1d0s0 /dev/dsk/c5t2d0s0 /dev/dsk/c5t3d0s0 -k

After that, I gave a metainit d100 on the commandline, and some moments
later, it came back with a prompt and a message that the RAID
was setup ! All data was preserved. Ofcourse I removed the -k option

Thanks again !
