Solaris 10 Disk Mirroring

Has anyone managed to set up disk mirroring in Solaris 10 yet? If so can you point me in the direction of some useful documentation please.

Cheers

Solaris 10 DiskSuite (but I haven't personally set it up - don't have any servers with 10 on them)

An alternative solution could be to use a third-party product such as Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM).

just had a look on the sol10 SVM and it is still the same as with the beloved disksuite... (looking forward to ZFS)
example:

Actually SMC seems much improved since the last time I looked at it, although I couldn't make the web version go. Now using X windows for the first time in x years.......

I just stumbled across this yesterday...bought a book to learn solaris, and it only references this command once.

Everything is launch though GUI...does anyone initiate from command-line anymore?

Most experienced people would suggest that if you can't do something from the command line that you don't know it, and any admin tool that doesn't run from the comand line, or have a command line version is 'broken'. It's not easy to script a gui.
