How to get a unique identifier UUID for a solaris volume meta device? I want the unique id like RID in veritas volume manager in solaris.

Are you talking about DiskSuite or ZFS? What operations do you want to use it for? – JOTN May 10 '11 at 13:39

I don't think Solaris has support for UUIDs on volumes. It has the makeuuid command but it only generates UUIDs.
