  1. How to unencapsulate Veritas VM 3.5 root disk ***Newbie question***

    Our server is running Solaris 8 and Veritas VM 3.5-mp3. We plan to
    upgrade our HBA driver and need to "break the connection" to the
    mirror root disk. What's the correct procedure/command to
    unencapsulate the root disk before the driver upgrade and to re-
    encapsulate the root disk after the upgrade ? Below are some of
    current settings. Thanks, Bill
