We have a failing hard drive which is mirrored to root. The iostat output shows hard errors and metadb shows that slice containg the DB has write errors. We are planning to replace the hard drive.Some suggest use metareplace, others use metattach after replacing the disk.which is the correct procedure.
metadetach>replace hard drive>fmthard>installboot>metareplace
                or
metadetach>replace hard drive>fmthard>installboot>metainit>metattach
