Prerequisites for Top-Down Volume Creation
Creating volumes and volume configurations automatically using the metassist command requires that
you have a functional Solaris Volume Manager configuration. Before you begin, you should
have the following:
In addition to these minimum requirements, do not disable the Solaris Volume
Manager RPC daemons (rpc.metad, rpc.metamhd, and rpc.metamedd) in the /etc/inetd.conf file. These daemons are configured
to start by default. They must remain enabled to allow Solaris Volume Manager
to use shared disk sets.
