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
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.
