After you create a disk set, you can create volumes and hot spare pools using the disks you added to the disk set. You can use either the Enhanced Storage tool within the Solaris Management Console or the command-line utilities.
To create volumes or other Solaris Volume Manager components within a disk set, use one of the following methods:
From the Enhanced Storage tool within the Solaris Management Console, open the Volumes, State Database Replicas, or Hot Spare Pools node. Choose Action⇒Create. Then follow the instructions in the wizard. For more information, see the online help.
Use the same command line utilities with the same basic syntax to create volumes, state database replicas, or hot spare pools. However, add -s disk-set immediately after the command for every command.
# command -s disk-set
The following example shows the creation of a mirror, d10, in the disk set, blue. The mirror consists of submirrors (RAID-0 volumes), d11 and d12.
