by Jeffrey Hunter, Sr. Database Administrator


Solaris Volume Manager includes a graphic user interview (GUI) named Enhanced Storage which is part of the Solaris Management Console.

To start the Volume Manager GUI:

  1. First, start the Solaris Management Console (SMC) on the host system using the following command:
    # /usr/sbin/smc
    NOTE: The first time the SMC is started on the host, it may take several minutes.

  2. Expand the item This Computer

  3. Expand the item Storage

  4. Double-click the item Enhanced Storage. (You may be prompted for the root password for the host.)

  5. Double-click the appropriate icon to manage volumes, hot spare pools, state database replicas, and disk sets.

Here is a screenshot of the Solaris Management Console and the Enhanced Storage Tool:
