I've just installed a new server, (Solaris 10)  I need to put two of the put of the disk together to make one, which on the other server is shows it's put together such as:


d170: Concat/Stripe
    Size: 573376896 blocks (273 GB)
    Stripe 0:
        Device     Start Block  Dbase   Reloc
        c2t8d0s0          0     No      Yes
    Stripe 1:
        Device     Start Block  Dbase   Reloc
        c2t9d0s0      20352     No      Yes


Below is what I show for the two disk c2t8d0 and c2t9d0, I can set it one up and then make a new file system and monunt them but not sure how I strip them together.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the link and info, I had found a few like that but they were not very clear, that one looks pretty good.

I have the OS installed and mirrors, I work with Solaris a lot but not very strong on the hardware side. I do have one other question to post, but have a few things before I can get back to it.

Thanks!!!
