Hey freebsd list,

I've bought a secondry HDD to attach to my server running freebsd 7.0. I want 
to enable gmirror on it (will reinstall everything from scratch), but I want to 
know if my hardware is setup correctly as a prerequisite for doing this 

The command dmesg | grep Seagate

ad4: 76319MB <Seagate ST380815AS 3.AAC> at ata2-master UDMA33
ad6: 76319MB <Seagate ST380815AS 3.AAC> at ata3-master UDMA33

Can I assume everything is ok now and can I start the reinstallation? Why I'm 
in doubt is because of the master/slave thing I was expecting but that seems 
something of the IDE world as I have bought two Sata hard drives and connected 
it with sata cables to my motherboard.

But just checking to be sure.

Brgds and thanks in advanced!

The concept of master / slave only exists in the IDE (PATA) world. SATA disks do not have these troubles, as there is only one per cable. Your setup is absolutely fine. If you haven't already, I suggest you read this excellent article:


I've set up quite a few gmirrors with this info.
