I am starting to play with SSD drives, TRIM and Mirroring in a Server 2012 environment. I have two identical SSD drives on the mobo (SATA Ports). The OS is loaded. I downloaded a doc about how to establish mirroring but it seems way too complicated. Shouldn't I just be able to convert the boot SSD to dynamic and say "clone the entire disk to the second drive"?

Yes, and you do that by converting the secondary drive to Dynamic, then right-clicking the boot disk and selecting Add Mirror and selecting the secondary disk to mirror to (in fact, I think you can even select a non-dynamic disk and it will convert it automatically).
