Thanks for all the reply's.

Here is what I ended up doing

Remove the concatenation on the disk that you want to remove.,

# metaclear d2
# metaclear d4
# metaclear d7
# metaclear d10

Remove the disk: c1t2d0.
Please folow the the server service manual

Create the vtoc on the new disk.

# prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c1t1d0s2 | fmthard -s - /dev/rdsk/c1t2d0s2

Create the concartenation on the new disk.

# metainit d2 1 1 c1t2d0s0

# metainit d4 1 1 c1t2d0s1

# metainit d7 1 1 c1t2d0s4

# metainit d10 1 1 c1t2d0s5

Attach the second way of the mirror.

# metattach d0 d2
# metattach d5 d4
# metattach d8 d7
# metattach d11 d10

metadb -a -c 3 c1t2d0s4

I have a blade2000 and the 2nd. internal drive needs to be replaced.
This is c1t2d0

I have both internal's mirrored with disksuite.

I went ahead and did a metadetach of the 4 metadevices on this drive

metadetach d8 d7
metadetach d5 d4
metadetach d0 d2
metadetach d11 d10

and also did a metadb -d c1t2d0s4.

Can I now remove the defective drive, install the new drive, partition
it like the boot drive and simply do a

metattach d0 d2
metattach d11 d10
metattach d8 d7
metattach d5 d4

metadb -a -c 3 c1t2d0s4

Or should this be done a different way?

Thanks much
Dave Martini
