The following example shows the creation of mirror d1 on the node phys-schost-1 to mirror /usr, which resides on c0t0d0s1. Mirror d1 consists of submirror d11 on partition c0t0d0s1 and submirror d21 on partition c2t2d0s1. The /etc/vfstab file entry for /usr is updated to use the mirror name d1. Device c2t2d0 is a multihost disk, so the localonly property is enabled.
