Hi Gurus,
Just wanted to clarify on procedure what i did:
After putting the new Disk in the same slot I ran 
 ./metareplace -e d1 c2t3d0s0 - after resync was complete it again   went  back to Maintenance mode 
then I did tried with HotSpare Slot Disk (after partitioning the   disk) 
 ./metareplace -f d1 c2t3d0s0 c2t13d0s0 - after resync was complete it 
again went back to Maintenance mode 
Any ideas?

	Hi Gurus, 

	I have Netra box with two D1000 attached running  Solaris 2.6. I have 
	installed Disksuite 4.2 and have created two Metadevice  with RAID- 5 on 
	each D1000. One week back I lost One Disk with error (Need Maintenance) 
	and other with "Last Erred". As per Sun Documentation I replaced the 
	disk with error "Need Maintenance" first and resynced but after 
	resyncing it again showed the same error "Maintenance" I put another 
	Disk and tried to resync but no luck. At last I use another slot from 
	D1000 (one Slot was HotSpare) and tried to resync but it seems it 
	doesn't come as Good after resync is done. I can still see the Data on 
	D1000. What could be the issue? I have 160 GB of Data sitting on this 
	D1000. Other D1000 attached to same Box is working fine. 

	Below is the output from metadevice: 

	d1: RAID 

	    State: Needs Maintenance 

	    Invoke: metareplace -f d1 c2t3d0s0 <new device> 

	    Hot spare pool: hsp002 

	    Interlace: 32 blocks 

	    Size: 353442528 blocks 

	Original device: 

	    Size: 353443520 blocks 

	        Device              Start Block  Dbase State        Hot Spare

	        c2t9d0s0                 330     No    Last Erred 

	        c2t10d0s0                330     No    Okay 

	        c2t11d0s0                330     No    Okay 

	        c2t12d0s0                330     No    Okay 

	Any Help/Pointer will be appreciated. 

	I will summarize.
