First of all thanks to the people for such quick replies..

My original question was:

>I've got 2 disks and want to mirror them. I'd like to do software
>Is there a built in program/utility in Solaris2.6 that I can use to
>mirror them? Or any other 3rd party programs which you could recommend?
>are your ideas and suggestions about this situation?

Suggestions are:
- Solstice DiskSuite can be used which comes in the Intranet Expansion
CD-ROM which again comes with the Solaris CD (Documentation is also
available in the CD)
There's also a mailing list about DiskSuite. In order to subscribe send a
message to and put
subscribe disksuite-l as your first line..
- For heavy duty applications Veritas Volume Manager might be a better
- Ufsdump can be used in a script to clone the disks (Prabhu Gurudas
Panchmal sent the script. Available upon request)

I think I'll go with the DiskSuite at the moment.. Depending on the
performance I may switch to Veritas Volume Manager..

Thanks again for answers.. Here's a list of people who replied me..
