I have a Sun Fire280R server currently running Solaris 8 and I would like to mirror the entire disk (root, etc…).  The Sun Fire 280R has a front loading drive controller (#1) with two slots.  I currently have the original disk which is running the OS in slot0 (target 0) and a second disk in slot1 (target1).  Both disks are the same make and model and are also partitioned exactly the same.  What are the steps to mirror the disk in slot0 (target0) to the disk in slot1 (target1)?  I have already established the metadb’s by using partitions 5 and 6 and I have also recorded the PATH to the Alternate Boot Device(slot1, target1) for precautionary purposes.
