[SUMMARY] Solaris 10 - metasync after every reboot

Thanks go to Helmut Kreft with his reply below.  It turned out I was 
getting a little too aggressive in disabling services to minimize my box. 
By checking the dependencies on the mdmonitor service I was able to trace 
back that the rpc/meta service relied on the inetd service which I 
previously disabled.  By enabling inetd again, then doing another init 6, 
all the mirrors now sync correctly and metastat shows everything as Okay.

Original Posting


I'm testing out Solaris 10 03/05 on my E250 with 6 hard drives.  I used
SVM to setup some mirrors including the root partition like I've done
before on my Solaris 9 boxes.

However, it seems that every time I reboot this test box and I run
metastat, the submirrors always say "Needs maintenance".  I run "metasync
<mirror>" and it syncs back up rather quickly, but then I have to do it
again after the next init 6 when I test another option.

Is there something I forget to add to keep the mirrors in sync after a
reboot?  Does anyone else see this behavior?
