    I got a SunFire V440 server. In the documentation is discribted a RAID
    function and a hot-spare function. But I can not find any information
    how to configure the *hot-spare* disk. I can see that one of the four
    HDD is reserved for hot-spare.

  2. The V440 has a raidcontroller that can do raid1. But you cannot
    configure it to use additional disks as hot-spare devices.

    If you want to have hot-spare disks then you must configure
    your raid with Solaris Volume Manager. See metadb(1M), metainit(1M),
    metattach(1M), and metahs(1M) for how to do this or consult the docs
    on docs.sun.com. There are pretty good examples.
