Working around a problem with terminal in OpenSolaris

When I upgraded my OpenSolaris media server from build 111 to build 127 to build 134a, I found that I started having problems when I tried to ssh into the system.  Here is the error message I see from my terminal:

PTY allocation request failed on channel 0
Warning: no access to tty (Bad file number).

Admin: Making OpenSolaris Boot Disk Mirrored via ZFS

This blog entry is a "note to self" entry.  I've got a system running OpenSolaris and I want to protect the data on the boot disk by mirroring it with a second disk; if one disk fails, ZFS will let me boot from the other disk, and I can easily replace the failed disk without any downtime.
