not a faux pas for me!! as i am new to this and it could be anything, I did init the second plex before newfs'ing and mounting it, but I think that the auto mounting is less of a problem than the config not being read (or vinum not starting) with the reboot. If i can get that fixed, i think i will be well on my way to getting this solved... it doesn't look like the vinum kld is being loaded, since even with the vinum config gone, it should say something like "no vinum drives found, vinum not loaded" in dmesg (i think, please correct me if im wrong) i will investigate this furthar and report back. thanks for the help roland _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
