How to Configure Internal Disk Mirroring

Perform this procedure on each node of the global cluster to configure internal hardware RAID disk mirroring to mirror the system disk. This procedure is optional.

Note -  Do not perform this procedure under either of the following circumstances:
  • Your servers do not support the mirroring of internal hard drives.

  • You have already established the cluster.

Instead, perform Mirroring Internal Disks on Servers that Use Internal Hardware Disk Mirroring or Integrated Mirroring in Managing Hardware With Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4.

Before You Begin

Ensure that the Oracle Solaris operating system and any necessary updates are installed.

  1. Assume the root role.
  2. Configure an internal mirror.
    phys-schost# raidctl -c clt0d0 clt1d0 
    –c clt0d0 clt1d0

    Creates the mirror of primary disk to the mirror disk. Provide the name of your primary disk as the first argument and the name of the mirror disk as the second argument.

    For specifics about how to configure your server's internal disk mirroring, refer to the documents that shipped with your server and the raidctl(8) man page.
