I'm following the handbook section 220.127.116.11 to add a disk to a FreeBSD
6.2 system. I've got the disk plugged in and it shows up as /dev/ad6 so i
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad6 bs=1k count=1
That worked fine. My problem came with fdisk. I used:
fdisk -BI ad6
and i got the message:
Invalid partition table
geom not found.
If i do:
i get a summary of the current disk partitions on ad6, all empty as this is
a new disk.
