Hi Managers,

My original Question was:

  Can I use DiskSuite to mirror an IDE Disk to another SCSI disk installed on S
un Ultra 10 ?

 I got three replies saying yes I can with following points taken into
 consideration :

  1. Solstice Disksiute sees no differece between EIDE and SCSI disks.
  2. Mirroring of EIDE drives is supported only if they are on different channel
      The problem is that if an error occurs on a master drive, the slave drive
for that
      channel will no longer respond to request.
  3. You need patch ID 106407-02 on Solaris 2.6 to prevent the previous problem.
  4. It's recommended that you always use the same model drive per mirrored pair
