John, it the metadevice configuration is kept in the /etc/lvm/md.cf
file, not in /etc/system or /etc/vfstab
With DiskSuite, there are two things that go into /etc/system. This is
info about your metadbs - the entries in /etc/system essentially tell
the kernel at boot time where to find them. The second thing is if your
root partition is a metadevice (mirrored, etc) and that the kernel
should treat it as such.
What you need to repopulate the /etc/system file with is the above
info. Hopefully, you HAVE NOT rebooted your system. run 'metadb -p -k
/etc/system' This will repopulate the metadb locations in your
Second, if your system drives/partitions are mirrored, add the
following to /etc/system as well:
* Begin MDD root info (do not edit)
rootdev:/pseudo/md at 0:0,10,blk
* End MDD root info (do not edit)
