disksuite mirroring d0 to d2 and d1 to d3

I have a SOlaris 10 v240 server. I'm installing disksuite to mirror the root drive D0 to D2. I also have one partition on disk 1 that I want to mirror to D3. I am not using ZFS right now.

Can I add that to my initial mirroring configuration or can I only mirror 1 drive to 1 drive?

Can I add that later by creating state databases on disks D1 and D3 and adding the mirror?

Thank you

please provide the technical outputs. anyway,state database replicas should be created first

thank you. I got the info on the sun forum that I could add to the replicas afterwards and just create the new mirror of the slice on the 2nd disk. I could also create the database on a new partition on the 2nd disk ask well.

thank you for your help
