If I have understood ada correct, the "first" disk (lowest current number) is ada0, the next ada1, and so on. If you have ad0 and ad4, they will be ad0=ada0, and ad4=ada1 . It doesn't affect anything _except_ the disk names, so ad4s1f = ada1s1f and so on. You'll have to change most of your fstab, basically s/ad0/ada0/g and s/ad4/ada1/g . That said, my one ad to ada transition was on a ZFS-only system, which took the fstab editing out of it. I might be horribly wrong in some or all of the above. -- Daniel Nebdal _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
