" I replaced three disks today in an E3000 and was able to run metastat 
" and look at the output to determine the bad disks. (The metadevices on 
" the bad disk show up with a "metareplace" command in the output.) I 
" physically replaced the bad disks and ran "devfsadm -C" to tell the OS 
" to find the new disks. Then I ran the metareplace command as shown in 
" the output of metastat with the addition of the "-e" flag in the 
" command. (That flag replaces the bad device with a new device in the 
" same position.) You should find that in the man page as well if I am not 
" being clear enough.

if a bad disk also has a metadb copy on it, you have to handle that
