Has anyone been successful creating new vinum volume
configurations or dropping old configurations on FreeBSD-5.4
AFAIK the old vinum does not work properly. At least it
keeps complaining me about problems. Additionally gvinum
which has been reported as a supported replacement for the
old vinum does not work either. The latter seems to even
be missing support for many of the commands mentioned in
"man vinum". E.g. dumpconfig, info, and resetconfig do not
work. To make the pain really hurt there is no man page for
Obvious enough, replacing old systems which have been running
4.x with the old perfectly functional vinum, has become very
hard. (OTOH things like ath, ehci, etc. are only available in
The upgrade should be created on fresh hard drives and the
drives replaced when the new installation is ready. So, it is
vitally important to be able to create and drop configurations
for vinum before the upgrade can proceed.
If anyone has an operational 5.4 + vinum installation which
was generated fresh on 5.3 or 5.4, any experiences, sample
configurations, and notes about the how the installation was
really done would be more than welcome.
