Hello Patrick, thanks again. Yes, label is switched. Yes there really are stuff on the partitions. No, I dont boot from da0s1d. It is a disk for migration. But the one who partitioned was fooled by Sysinstall which creates the first label on extra disks as 'd' and the last from the allowed 7 as 'a'. Therefore this server is still booting on the original disk (ad6s1a) and everything else is mounted in the new one (da0s1), everything but root. > > > > >> >> > >> > Kind regards, >> > Patrick >> > -- >> > punkt.de GmbH * Kaiserallee 13a * 76133 Karlsruhe >> > Tel. 0721 9109 0 * Fax 0721 9109 100 >> > i...@punkt.de http://www.punkt.de >> > Gf: Jürgen Egeling AG Mannheim 108285 >> > >> >> >> >> -- >> =========== >> Eduardo Meyer >> pessoal: dudu.me...@gmail.com >> profissional: ddm.farmac...@saude.gov.br >> _______________________________________________ >> email@example.com mailing list >> http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions >> To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" >> > -- =========== Eduardo Meyer pessoal: dudu.me...@gmail.com profissional: ddm.farmac...@saude.gov.br _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
