Solaris : How to do a Raid 1 (mirror) on data disk?

Hello experts.

I have 4 disks on a Sun Fire V440 (solaris 11).
I have mirrored the root disk and I want to use the two other disks c2t2d0 & c2t3d0 as data disk.

I plan to mirror the data disk for a better data redundancy, but I don't know exactly how to partition them, and I am not sure how can I mirror data disk. Can you guide me  ?

bash-3.2# format

Presumably you partitioned the two remaining drives to include a small partition where the metadata can be stored.
Format
Select disk 2
Partition to see the current partition table
Let's say s7 will be the 100mb
s0 will be the rest of the space
Make sure to partition disk 3 in exactly the same way.

metainit d21 1 1 c0t2d0s0
metainit d22 1 1 c0t3d0s0
metainit d2 -m d21
metattach d2 d22
