Hi Laszlo,

Well it looks like you've got gm0 up and running.  I assume you've
edited /etc/fstab so that it boots cleanly.  My first thought is that
you need to zero ad8 to make sure gmirror isn't confused.  Try that (dd
if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad8) at least for several blocks.  Then reboot and
post dmesg.

 Hello Gayns,

Good to see you again. :-)

backupserver# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad8 count=4096
4096+0 records in
4096+0 records out
2097152 bytes transferred in 0.686872 secs (3053192 bytes/sec)

< then I rebooted >

backupserver# gmirror insert gm0 /dev/ad8
Provider ad8 too small.

Here are the important parts from my dmesg:

This is really wreid! The hard disks are the same: SAMSUNG HD160JJ ZM100-33. But one is bigger than the other. How could this happen? Should I reinstall everything from the beginning? :-(
