Option 2:At present, both systems are using local mirroring ,3 mirror

the other host.Once again, each zpool will only be imported on one host,
but in the event of a failure, you could force import it on the other
Can anybody think of a reason why Option 2 would be stupid, or can you
think of a better solution?
If they are close enough for "crossover cable" where the cable is UTP,
then they are
close enough for SAS.
Pardon my ignorance, can a system easily serve its local storage
devices over SAS to a neighbor system (i.e. using a SAS HBA in
place of an Ethernet NIC of an IB card in Ed's crossover scenario?)
Would this be doable over today's COMSTAR, using a different
storage path from the iSCSI stack most often used now?
