Sun T5120 hardware RAID question

Hi everyone

I've just purchased a Sun T5120 server with 2 internal disks. I've configured hardware RAID (mirror) and as a result the device tree in Solaris only contains 1 hard drive.

My question is, how would I know when one of the drives become faulty?

Thanks

with raidctl -S, you can check the status

eg
Code:
# # raidctl -S

1 "LSI 1030"
c1t1d0 2 0.2.0 0.3.0 1 DEGRADED
0.2.0 GOOD
0.3.0 FAILED
