works fine for me.

I am using Disksuite on Solaris 8 intel boxes with good results.  The
machines are dual-CPU Compaq 1850R's and DL380's.  I am doing root and
swap mirroring, both 2-way and 3-way, and data disk mirroring with hot
spares.  These are all SCSI devices, including system drives.  I
believe there are issues with mirroring IDE drives, so I would not
recommend doing that.  I am using UFS logging, as opposed to ODS
logging with tran metadevices, also with good results.

Works great! I have been using it since Solaris 7 when it was
only included in the Solaris Easy Access Server v2.0 additional
software... Granted, I have only used it then SCSI HDDs (my
personal opinion is that IDE sucks... I have had too many of
them die on me, probably at a rate of 8 bad IDE HDDs for every
SCSI HDD failure...)

It is a cheap solution for disk mirroring... but now I have
been replacing DiskSuite with hardware solutions... primarily
AMI MegaRAID... but I am evaluating other newer and better
