When you use the custom JumpStart installation method to create RAID-1 volumes (mirrors) and RAID-0 volumes (submirrors), you can enable the software to detect and assign volume names to mirrors, or you can assign the names in the profile.
If you enable the software to detect the names, the software assigns the first volume number that is available.
If you assign names in the profile, assign mirror names ending in zero so that the installation can use the names ending in 1 and 2 for submirrors.
If you assign numbers incorrectly, the mirror might not be created. For example, if you specify a mirror name with a number that ends in 1 or 2 (d1 or d2), JumpStart fails to create the mirror if the mirror name duplicates a submirror's name.
You can abbreviate the names of physical disk slices and Solaris Volume Manager volumes. The abbreviation is the shortest name that uniquely identifies a device. Examples follow.
A Solaris Volume Manager volume can be identified by its dnum designation, so that, for example, /dev/md/dsk/d10 becomes simply d10.
If a system has a single controller and multiple disks, you might use t0d0s0, but with multiple controllers use c0t0d0s0.
In the following profile example, the mirror is assigned the first volume numbers that are available. If the next available mirror ending in zero is d10, then the names d11 and d12 are assigned to the submirrors.
filesys mirror c0t0d0s1 /
In the following profile example, the mirror number is assigned in the profile as d30. The submirror names are assigned by the software, based on the mirror number and the first available submirrors. The submirrors are named d31 and d32.
filesys mirror:d30 c0t1d0s0 c0t0d0s0 /
