The following example shows creation of mirror d4 to mirror /export, which resides on c0t0d0s4. Mirror d4 consists of submirror d14 on partition c0t0d0s4 and submirror d24 on partition c2t2d0s4. The /etc/vfstab file entry for /export is updated to use the mirror name d4. Disk c2t2d0 is a multiported disk, so the localonly property is enabled.
