    I Think it need small correction.

    metainit d6 -m d41 # after creating mirror we should not attached second sub mirror if we will attach then data will be over write on second sub mirror and current data will be lost.

    mount metadevice
    # mount /dev/md/dsk/d6 /

    If data is determined to be INVALID, unmount first submirror, metaclear -f d6, mount second submirror and attempt to validate this data:
    # umount /dev/md/dsk/d41 # mount /dev/md/dsk/d42

    ** verify data at this point **

    If data is determined to be valid, recreate the mirror metadevice using this submirror:
    # umount /dev/md/dsk/d42 # metainit d6 -m d42

    mount the metadevice
    #mount /dev/md/dsk/d6 /

    validate the data, if all data is correct and ok then attach second submirror.
