Re: sasmgr split the root mirror

This is how we did it on an rx6600, the procedure should be the same:
sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd1 -q phy=all (just to verify where the disks were located)
sasmgr get_info -D /dev/sasd1 -q target=all
Target SAS Address : 0x73c108c56c36fac (this was the RAID disk)
Target Health : ONLINE
IPort SAS Address : None
Previous IPort SAS Address : None
Target Type : RAID Device
Target Topology : DIRECT
Protocol Capability of Target : SSP
Target Slot : 0xffff
Target Enclosure ID : 0xe0000001ce407180
Target Enclosure Type : UNKNOWN

Target SAS Address : 0x5000c500128ac159
Target Health : ONLINE
IPort SAS Address : 0x500605b0009deab6
Previous IPort SAS Address : 0x0
Target Type : SCSI Device
Target Topology : DIRECT
Protocol Capability of Target : SSP
Target Slot : 0x6
Target Enclosure ID : 0x1
Target Enclosure Type : Direct Attached SGPIO
