    Don not forget to add the entry of your mirror disk in /boot/grub/menu.lst else you wont see any option in the GRUB menu. In that case you need to find the mirror disk via Grub prompt and have to boot the server from mirror disk accordingly. So best option is to keep the entry in menu.lst while doing mirroring in x-86 servers. Also you will encounter many errors while performing this activity in x-86 servers. That you champs need to check and ask..:)

    @Rony, here we have to cases: one is SVM software RAID.In this case the procedure will remain the same as that of SPARC but unfortunately you wont be able to boot your box with mirror disk. I chased up with SUN for much time but No vaild work around was provided by them. At last I tried some methods to recover the same and find the way to boot the box from mirror disk but it requires couple of tricks which I will share in seperate post. The second method is hardware RAID in that case you can bring out the disk using raidctl command or simple pull out the disk as inacse of Linux.
