Hardware Raid - LiveUpgrade

Hi,

I have a question. Do LiveUpgrade supports hardware raid?
How to choose the configuration of the system disk for Solaris 10 SPARC?

1st Hardware RAID-1 and UFS
2nd Hardware RAID-1 and ZFS
3rd SVM - UFS and RAID1
4th Software RAID-1 and ZFS

I care about this in the future to take advantage of LiveUpgrade and LDOMs.

Cheers,
Mark

I believe it is possible with hardware RAID. as long as you got enough space for the newbe than it will be no problem. Also you can rollback easily iff something goes wrong.

We use LiveUpgrade to patch our server, but only the server with ZFS. We had some nasty encounters with UFS.
