What's New in Solaris Volume Manager

This section describes new features for working with Solaris Volume Manager in this Solaris release.

For a complete listing of new Solaris features and a description of Solaris releases, see What’s New in Solaris Express.

Support for Descriptive Names

Solaris Express 4/06: Solaris Volume Manager has been enhanced to include the use of descriptive names for both volumes and hot spare pools. System administrators can now name volumes and hot spare pools by using any name that follows the naming guidelines.

A new option has been added to the metastat command to assist in identifying volumes and hot spare pools with descriptive names. The metastat -D command lists all of the volumes and hot spare pools with descriptive names. This information is useful if it becomes necessary to move your storage to a previous release of the Solaris OS that does not support the use of descriptive names.

For more information, see Volume Names.
