Hi all,

Late yesterday, I ``cloned'' my single, primary IDE FreeBSD hard disk onto
a larger one. Then, using a Promise ATA IDE RAID controller I built a
RAID-1 array.

Everything went as planned, the box is now back up using the 'ar' driver
for the array. However, in the security run output last night, I got this:

Did this happen because the files were transferred from one disk to
another and the system knew it?

Yes. When you copied the files across, the copies were allocated different inode numbers on the new filesystem. It's that difference that the nightly check is picking up on.
