Sun V240 Raid Question

Hi All, I'm new to this site. I have a few question since I'm in the process how to to repair my raid on Sun V240 Server.

1. How can we create RAID in Sun Sparc v240?

2. What utility can help people create RAID in Sun Sparc v240?

3. Do we need any special software to create the RAID?

4. How can we repair RAID volume?
