The script given here has totally been rewritten as Perl modules. These have been much more tested than this old script. Please use theses modules on CPAN than this script, still here for history.
The modules on CPAN permit much more than just a mere text view of the configuration:
These modules are available in my CPAN directory.
Solstice Disksuite (aka. Solaris Volume Manager) is a beast to administer. When you have to create lots of volumes, when you need to use for these a huge number of soft-partitions, you'll rapidly get lost.
I was in that situation, so I wrote the following script, which I use and augment from time to time to ease SDS administration. The Perl written there may not be clean, lean nor idiomatic, but it works™.
You can download it sds.pl.
The changelog is included in the script, but is mostly in french, as most of the messages (especially error messages).
Here is the usage banner:SDS Manager - Jerome Fenal, LogicaCMG France $Revision: 1.5 $ ./sds.pl [-c] [-i id] command ... Options: [-f <metastat-p.txt>] : use <metastat-p.txt> as "metastat -p" cmd output [-c] : turn coloured output on [-h] : show this help text [-i <newdevid>] : use newdevid as new metadevice id instead of first avail.

and more not yet documented...
Do not forget to update the %Axis hash if you want to create new devices (mirrors).
