Hi, I'm wondering if someone could point me in the right direction of moving the entire /usr partition to a second hard disk, given that I am on an existing (newly installed) install of FreeBSD.
First, you need to copy all the stuff over. You can use dump(8)/restore(8), or mount /usr read-only, new /usr read-write (under a temporary mount point like /mnt) and use tar(1), cpio(1L), or cp(1). Then it's just a matter of unmounting /usr and mounting your new device under this mount point. Don't forget to edit the fstab(5) entry.
Also, is it possible to specify something like this during the installation itself?
Just partition your second drive and define any mount point on any of it's partitions - everything will be fine. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
