This document is aimed at those attempting to setup root disk mirroring with Solaris[TM] Volume Manager on Solaris[TM] 9 x86. This should be used in conjunction with the Solaris Volume Manager Administration Guide:
Many Sun customers mirror the root partition on their critical systems to minimize downtime and maximize availability. A mirrored root should provide the customer with a way to have their systems automatically boot from a secondary drive if the primary fails.
Note: Solaris Volume Manager(SVM) supplied with Solaris[TM] 9 was previously known as Solstice DiskSuite[TM] (SDS).
