Hi All,

Here's the scenario.

I bootup the mirror disk as the boot device. Now I want to re-mirror the mirror disk to root disk because the root disk had a problem during installation of patch.

Kindly provide a procedure we want to re-mirror the mirror disk to rootdisk (still a existing root disk it is not empty).
