M5000 Question


I 've a fully loaded M5000 which i would like to partition in 4 domains but i have a concern that since we have only 4 internal disks how can we partition the box in for domains with 2 disks ( mirrored ) in each domain. Should i go ahead with 1 Lun from SAN and 1 internal disk for each of 4 domains ? OR is there any other way to parition the box. Any thoughts ?

the internal disks can only be used by two domains. if you'll create 4 domains, you'll need external storage for minimum two of the domains.

So is there any step by step config guide to set up 4 domains .. as i 've set up domains already on that box .. and would like to set other 2 more .. and is it ok if i go ahead with zfs boot for SAN ?
