Consensus was to use Solstice DiskSuite 4.x which is free with Solaris2.6
and Solaris2.7 server edition. DiskSuite is capable of doing
concatenation,striping, and mirroring, and some combination of the three.
Suffices to say this will more than solve my problem!

Solaris-7 came preinstalled on my Ultra 10 and I did not find DiskSuite
installed. I just placed order for the Solaris-7 server CD's.

once again, thanks everyone,

Subject: Multiple Disks on a single File System
I have an Ultra-10 running Solaris 7 on it. I have three external hard
drives, 9GB, 9GB, and 4 GB. I would like the total of 22 GB mounted as one
logical volume/file system, something similar to what I have been able to
do in the AIX file system.
I understand that Solistice DiskSuite or Veritas File System will be able
to do what I want, however, spending money for buying one of these
software is not a choice!
Is there a public domain software or is there a way to do this in
Once again the question is of mounting 22GB on three different disks as
on a single file system.
