For this config, HW RAID is a non-negotiable requirement and SVM cannot

You can use soft partitions on top of hardware RAID.  Suppose your
hardware RAID'd disk is visible to the OS as c1t0d0 and you have
slices 6 (many gigabytes) and 7 (<100MB) available:

# Create the metadatabases
metadb -a -c 3 -f c1t0d0s7
# Create 30 soft partitions, 500 MB each
i=1000; while [ $i -lt 1030 ] ; do
   metainit d$i -p c1t0d0s6 500m
   newfs /dev/md/rdsk/d$i
   i=`expr $i + 1`
done
