Good morning,

Just curious - are you not using a multipathing software? I'd be surprised
if not... In that case you should not use the raw/physical devices in
/dev/rdsk, but rather the pseudo-device the multipathing software creates
for you. These you can tame a lot more  easily, and partition them to your
liking. For Solaris and EMC PowerPath for example (which I use a lot), you
could create slice 4 (with proper alignment with the array) spanning pretty
much all the disk, and assign this to ASM with a wildcard.
