Solstice disksuite - mirror sync direction

I have an existing mirror configured (d10) with submirrors (d11 and d12). I recently detached the d12 mirror for an upgrade. I know want to re-attach the d12 mirror to sync with the active mirror (d11). When I run the command metattach d10 d12 - which way will the sync occur?

Will the data be synced FROM d11 to d12 (overwriting d12)?

Yes, as you described your metadisks, when you issue the command 'metattach d10 d12', the content of d11 will be written to d12.

Hi I had a disksuite mirror with two sub-mirrors which I wanted to expand.
