Thanks to Paul Boven and Michael Schneider for the following information:

Are you sure they are actually resynchronizing? In single-user mode, it will
not have started /etc/rc2.d/S95svm.sync yet, for instance. So you need to
start the synchronization yourself, e.g. with the metasync command or the
aforementioned rc-script.

Subject: Single-user mode metastat


I have a Sun E4500 with attached A5200.  We have had terrible weather that
has caused massive power outages leading to my system going down rather

I am in single-user mode and a quick metastat shows the disks are resynching
but it doesn't show the percentage along they are like the output normally
displays when the system is up and running normally.

Does anyone know how to tell how far along a synchronization is for the
metadevices while in "boot -s" mode.
