i had an issue with an mirror i setup ,,,it wouldnt mount via the path
that was set in /etc/vfstab but would mount manually. so thanx to

his suggestion was to do the following:

If you can mount in manually, the filesystem is certainly ok...just looks
like the volume info got messed could recreate it by :-

metaclear -r d6
(this will get rid of d6, d30 and d40 - data on the disk won't be touched)
metainit d30 1 1 c1t0d0s5 (re-create first sub-mirror)
metainit d6 -m d30 (create the mirror device)
then you should be able to
mount /metro
finally...the mirror...
metainit d40 1 1 c1t1d0s5 (create the second sub-mirror)
metattach d6 d40 (this will start the volumes syncing..)


thanx to all who replied
