New Sds Slice

Hi,
I'd like to add two new disk (mirrored each other) in a machine still on line.
The machine is mirrored with SDS. the idea is to add two new disk and mirroring them in order to add a new mount point like "/produit" with only half of the new disk.

who could send me exemples or tell me how to add a new mirrored slice in the mount point "/produit" without changing the inital configuration on the inital disks. (ex: changinf md.conf metattach etc etc...)
Regards.
