Is there a way to access/start up a volume group from a 
single drive of a failed raid 1?

I had a drive fail on my raid 1 array, and I didn't want to 
have to bring up a md device to be able to access the 
volume group information.  Is there any way to access the 
individual drives in the array without having to bring it 

I know that on a Solaris system, you can access any single 
drive in a mirror independently, if the mirror is 

Any help would be appreciated.
