Here's what I've found so far:

vmrun.sh does not like zvols and I am hoping for:

sh vmrun.sh -m 1024 -d /dev/zvol/zroot/vm3 vm3

It gets as far as:

 Writing partition tables                   [In Progress ]
 Initializing ada0p2                        [   Failed   ]

I am trying to figure out why.

What does work for me for FreeBSD VM's is to prepare /dev/zvol/zroot/vm3
using the bhyve-script approach and then boot it as usual.

I will include this in an rc version of "bhyve-script" that I hope to
release shortly. It may not be worth adding the functionality to
bhyve-script as it is EOL.
