Disk Mirroring for Solaris 10 x86

I am having an issue with setting up disk mirroring for Solaris 10 on an x86 server. My main problem is that the volumes and slices have already been setup and our proprietary software has already been installed and configured. The entire drive has been allocated in this configuration and the metadb command seems to fail everytime I try to setup the database replica. I am somewhat new to mirroring disks with Solaris 10.

Hi chuck43,

I would advice you to look at zfs, see site below

Home at OpenSolaris.org

ZFS at OpenSolaris.org

I hope this is of help.

If you plan to use the eixsting drives for mirroring, you'll will need to

1) Backup the data

2) uninstall the propreity system
-If Veritas, then then there should be a doumentated method to convert the VxVFS volume\ disk to UFS

3) Install your Disk mirroring - Soalris comes with DiskSuite\Solstice (v8 & before) or Solairs Volume Manager (v10)
