Solaris Volume Manager: Break Mirror and use to make a 2nd machine


I have a machine built on 2 drives and mirrors have been created to a second set of 2 drives (4 total) on the same platform. SVM.

Might anyone provide guidance to create a second machine by breaking the mirrored set, moving the two mirrors (2) to another machine (same platform type), and making them bootable; thus creating a second machine?

if the mirroring is done properly the drives should be bootable...

For modern C programming, defining functions is a two step process. First, you declare a function and its signature using a prototype. Then you define the function by providing a function body that defines what the function does.
