A1000 + 420R + Hardware RAID

    I have been tasked with replacing a disk on an A1000 array. I am sure
    the system is using some type of hardware raid, but I am not familiar
    with this system at all. I would like to query the RAID to determine
    if the failed disk is part of the array or not. I have attempted
    using tools like drivutil, raidutil, and metatool but none are
    installed. Should I install one of these? I was thinking if they are
    not installed whoever setup the box used something I am unfamiliar
    with. Please enlighten me.

    Thank you for the help.

    Use the raid manager software, it should be in /usr/sbin/osa. If they
    aren't then just download from Sun and install, sorry I forget the
    package name, the file I use is rm6221-fcs-sparc-bin.zip.

    You shouldn't need metatool really, the A1000 uses hardware raid and
    should present the A1000 as a logical disk, this can then be manipulated
    by DiskSuite.

    You should have Raid Manager 6 installed...
    Try typing "rm6" and see if its in your path. It's gui based.
