It looks from the above that you are loading the vinum kernel module,
not the geom_vinum kernel module. To load the correct one, add the
following to your /boot/loader.conf file:
That's all you need. You should remove any extraneous cruft from
/etc/rc.conf that might cause the vinum kernel module to be loaded,
e.g., remove "start_vinum" if it's there. Also remove any
non-geom_vinum Vinum entries from /boot/loader.conf. E.g., remove
"vinum_load" and "vinum.autostart" if still present.
Note that the Vinum configuration resides on the drives, so you
shouldn't need an "/etc/vinum.conf" or similar to configure your Vinum
volumes on subsequent reboots. You only need it initially to create the
Geom_vinum will scan the drives during boot and activate any Vinum
configuration it discovers.
