While trying to learn and understand the dump-retore process, I messed up the ad4s1a partition and could not boot. To fix it I restored a dumpfile of ad12s1a which is, for all intents and purposes, the same as ad4s1a. I then boot from ad4 and surprise, surprise... #df shows we have been booted from ad12 and all partitions are ad12.... Booting from ad12s1a gives exactly the same results.
The /etc/fstab from ad12 will point at ad12. After restoring on ad4, did you edit fstab to now have ad4 entries?
