Disksuite question - Sun Solaris

I have a stripe partition attached to a U60 that I would like to replace with a larger RAID 5 partition. I was wondering, in the interest of saving down time, if I could build the partition on another U60, and then move it to the U60 where it will be permanently attached. Obvioulsy since RAID5 is different from the stripe, I would need to wipe out the metadevice, and I might as well clear the md database as well. Once the system is built on the other U60, I figure then I can move to where I want it. ...

    I have a stripe partition attached to a U60 that I would like to replace with a
    larger RAID 5 partition.
    I was wondering, in the interest of saving down time, if I could build the
    partition on another U60, and then move it to the U60 where it will be
    permanently attached.

    Obvioulsy since RAID5 is different from the stripe, I would need to wipe out
    the metadevice, and I might as well clear the md database as well.

    Once the system is built on the other U60, I figure then I can move to where I
    want it. Question what is required? Can I simply just copy the contents of
    /etc/lvm and the md part of the /etc/system. I'm pretty sure that if I run
    metainit it will redo everything, and that would take a fair bit of time. So,
    I'm wondering if there's a way to fake that out, and get the raid partition
    installed without running metainit..

    Any ideas, or am I merely delusional? Or is it a good idea, but I'm delusional
    anyway..
