Tru64 filesystems

I'm unfortunatly a newbie when it comes to Tru64 and I must say it's storage system scares me.
I installed 5.1B on an Alpha at work to run some legacy app we must use. After much digging thru documentation I managed to get the system installed, the root mirrored and two additional disks installed as a mirrored diskset.

Looks like this:

raid_domain#raiddisk 71128064 37719078 33317360 54% /raiddisk

All was good and well untill they started testing the application. Turns out the swap on the machine is way to small (4G RAM, 384M swap). Thats my bad.

So I installed 2 more disks in the machine dsk4 and dsk5 and attempted to create a mirrored swap disk and a new mirrored filesystem.

This is where things got tough. When I installed this machine a few weeks back I finally found some GUI disk administration tool that allowed me to create the raiddisk above. I didnt note what the tools name was and now I cant find that tool again.

It's not dxlsm, not dtadvfs or other tools I've rediscovered thus far.

Can anyone here help me finish this simple task that seems to be way over my head ?
