    metainit: psoftprod: d71: "-f": illegal option

    I am trying to create a RAID 0 volume using metainit. It is telling
    me that -f is an illegal operation. This does not make sense to me;
    why would this happen ? I am running Solaris 9 on a V880.

    There are a few errors in the examples given in the doentation,
    like this one, still not corrected in the Solaris 9 8/03 docs
    at http://docs.sun.com/db/doc/816-4519

    Try:

    # metainit -f d71 1 1 c1t2d0s2

    SDS/SVM is very particular about the placement of command line
    switches and its error messages are misleading if the command is not
    constructed just right.
