Thanks to all who did reply so quick. I got so many emails, greatly
appreciate your help.
Most of the people suggested we use either Veritas Volume Manager or
DiskSuite from sun, DiskSuite was preferred by most because it does come
with Solaris. Anyway link
(Mirroring A Boot Drive Using Solstice Disksuite) was suggested which I find
pretty good, it does describe how to do this, how to install and all...

Well I just once again wanted to thank everyone for help.

Subject: E3500 how to mirror FC root drive

Hello all, I have E3500 with FC root drive in there (actually 4 of them but
one is in use). I wanted to mirror this root disk to another drive and in
case of the main HD failure I would be able to boot from the second disk.
What I understand simple ufsdump/ufsrestore would not work because of world
wide names for devices. Is there any way for me to mirror this drive to
another drive and then be able to boot from it? Can someone point me to the
right direction? Some links, hints would be great.

Thank you so much.
