Hardware RAID on Solaris-10 disk


I am not able to figure out if the disk is in mirror or not (hardware RAID). c1t1d0s0 is the one, which I need to replace, as this one is in the failing state.
solaris-10-priv#df -h /export/u02
Filesystem             size   used  avail capacity  Mounted on
/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s0      275G   266G   6.4G    98%    /export/u02
solaris-10-priv#echo | format

solaris-10-priv#raidctl -l 2
Controller      Type            Version
c2              LSI_1068E

raidctl on that disk doesn't work, which I thought should work
solaris-10-priv#raidctl -l c1t1d0
Controller device can not be found.


Please suggest.

Didn't realized, I was supposed to use "/opt/StorMan/arcconf getconfig 1"
I am good now :-)

Thanks for the update.
These hardware RAIDs ship with their own software. I wonder if Solaris provides a general frontend where they can plug in. (Like fbconfig, it was a frontend command for most of the graphic adaptors.)
