Data SDS to Veritas migration

...I have a situation where I disks that I mirrored using Solstice Disksuite now need mirroring under Veritas Volume manager...would anyone know the best way to go about 'un-mirroring' and then removing SDS? I can see references in /etc/vfstab and /etc/system that I guess would need removing/editing ...anything else.

many thanks

Check out this link and this link on Sunsolve and go to to find the administration guide on-line SDS 4.2

Carefully read over the documentation - you have to do this in a certain order or you could end up with damaged data or system.
