Replace a failing slice 

If a disk fails, you must replace the slices used in your Solaris Volume Manager configuration. In the case of RAID-0 volume, you have to use a new slice, delete and re-create the volume, then restore data from a backup. Slices in RAID-1 and RAID-5 volumes can be replaced and resynchronized without loss of data.
