Can someone help me mirror a root disk on Solaris 11

I'm trying to identify the disks but they have weird long labels that I'm not used to. I'm used to the convention c0t0d0s<whatever>.

This is my output from format

root@ggadmin2:/dev/rdsk# format
Searching for disks...done

c0t5000CCA080863078d0: configured with capacity of 1117.76GB

0. c0t5000CCA02F3D50DCd0 <HGST-H101860SFSUN600G-A990-558.91GB>
1. c0t5000CCA02F3D7D80d0 <HGST-H101860SFSUN600G-A990-558.91GB> solaris
2. c0t5000CCA02F3D5100d0 <HGST-H101860SFSUN600G-A990-558.91GB> solaris

6. c1t0d0 <MICRON-eUSB DISK-1112 cyl 246 alt 0 hd 255 sec 63>
Specify disk (enter its number):

This is my zpool status:

root@ggadmin2:/dev/rdsk# zpool status rpool
pool: rpool
state: ONLINE
scan: none requested

rpool ONLINE 0 0 0
c0t5000CCA02F3D50DCd0 ONLINE 0 0 0

errors: No known data errors

So which is my root disk and which disk can I mirror it to?

Can I use prtvtoc against one of those big long names e.g.

prtvtoc /dev/rdsk/c0t5000CCA02F3D50DCd0s2 |fmthard -s - /dev/rdsk/c0t5000CCA02F3D7D80d0s2

and then do a zpool attach?

Also notice that the 0 disk has no label/description but the next 3 have "solaris" displayed after them.

What's the significance of that?

Thanks for any help.
