    3. Detach the root disk from the mirror.
    metadetach d0 d10
    metadetach d1 d11
    metadetach d3 d13
    metadetach d4 d14
    metadetach d5 d15
    metadetach d6 d16

    metaclear d10
    metaclear d11
    metaclear d13
    metaclear d14

    7. Create metadisks.
    metainit d10 1 1 c1t0d0s0
    metainit d11 1 1 c1t0d0s1
    metainit d13 1 1 c1t0d0s3

    metattach d3 d13
    metattach d4 d14
    metattach d5 d15
    metattach d6 d16
    9. Create replica.
    metadb -a -c3 /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s7
