That most likely means that you currently have a filesystem on ad0 mounted. If
that's the case you should be glad that the OS was smarter than you. What
steps had you taken prior to this?

It appears to say in the manpage that you can do this on a disk with
an existing filesys - would you expect it to work if the disk is
unmounted first, then?


man gmirror:
"Create a mirror on disk with valid data (note that the last sector of the
    disk will be overwritten).  Add another disk to this mirror, so it will
    be synchronized with existing disk:

           gmirror label -v -b round-robin data da0
           gmirror insert data da1
