Hey I can give u solution:

1.) Unmount the /test directory.
#umount /test

2.)Make a simple concatenated metadevice for

#metainit -f d1 1 1 c1t0d0s2

3.)Now make two soft partitions on this device of 8 gb each

#metainit d2 -p d1 8gb

#metainit d3 -p d1 8gb

4.)Create Filesystem and mount them.

#newfs /dev/md/rdsk/d2
#newfs /dev/md/rdsk/d3

#mount /dev/md/dsk/d2 /test1
#mount /dev/md/dsk/d3 /test2

Will work 100% Smilie

Note: For Raid -5 volumes ,you should need atleast three disks.


# metainit d4 -r c2t3d0s2 c3t0d0s2 c4t0d0s2 d4: RAID is setup(Will setup a RAID-5 volume)
