Thanks to all the responses... the overall consensus was that Solaris dd
cannot do this and to use gnu dd which can have a kill -USR1 sent to it
to obtain some information regarding status.


> Running a dd, need to see what the progress is, is this possible in

> Solaris 10?

> Cmd I ran:


> dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s0 of=/dev/rdsk/c0t1d0s0

> Solaris 10 10/08
