I have 4 disks, target 0 has solaris, targets 1-3 are blank, can be destroyed.  I need to merge targets 1-3 into one drive . I'm not sure how to do this.  Using Solstice ?   Some thirdparty tools?   They are all 36 gig drives. I'm not concerned about RAID functionality, but if this can be easily added, why not.  

I did a few queries on the solutions database and there was nothing interesting that I found.
