Replace system disk on 4.0G

Replace system disk on 4.0G

Dont usually do this so need some help. I have a blown disk which is one part of a mirrored pair. and part of a volume. The disk is showing detached in LSM ( white ).

I need to replace the disk is it just a case of using voldiskadm and selecting replace failed or removed disk?

Do i need to disklabel the replacement disk first? or does voldiskadm take care of all of that.

Any help would be most gratefully received

Chapter 6.4.6 gives the explanations for bootdevices.

This docs are for 5.1, I couldn't find for 4.0G, read through them and see if they are helpful
