Thank you for lot of quick answers.
Thanks to
Donovan Reetz, Karyn Williams, Adam and Christine L, Andrew Caines, Tim 
Chipman, Debbie Tropiano, Larye Parkins, Mike Salehi, Serge Borkov, Darren 
Dunham and Thomas Anders.

My original question was:
Hi admins,

Forgot make a small partiation on root and system disk. The data disks were
mirrored a quit while. I am going to make root&system disk mirror, any goog
idea where to put SDS state databse into? What is the issue if I do not
metadb -a on this two disks.

Almost everyone recommend to steal little bit from swap space. I'll going to 
do this. Delete swap: swap -d /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s1, creat new small 
partiation, /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s3, create databas, metadb -a -c 2 c0t0d0s3 
c1t0d0s3. Then swap -a /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0s1.

Since there are several state db on other disks, just go ahead do mirrors 
for root and sytem disk.

Solution 3:
It came from Andrew Caines, he said: If you're feeling brave, you can steal 
the last cylinders on a new and
partly full UFS, then fsck it.*

Thank you guys again
