implementing RAID 1 from RAID 5

Dear ALl,

I have a RAID 5 volume which is as below

d120             r   60GB c1t2d0s5 c1t3d0s5 c1t4d0s5 c1t5d0s5
d7               r   99GB c1t2d0s0 c1t3d0s0 c1t4d0s0 c1t5d0s0
d110             r   99GB c1t2d0s4 c1t3d0s4 c1t4d0s4 c1t5d0s4
d8               r   99GB c1t2d0s1 c1t3d0s1 c1t4d0s1 c1t5d0s1
d9               r   49GB c1t2d0s3 c1t3d0s3 c1t4d0s3 c1t5d0s3

Now My co is asking me to create RAID 1 from the above disks.

Kindly let me know how can I configure RAID 1 from the above.

YOur help is much appreciated.

backup all data, create the new needed volumes and restore the data to the new volumes.
as allready mentioned in your other thread, you have 4 disks on the same controller which is and will be a performance issue even with the new raid 1 volumes.
