I've read various documents on amd, but am having issues...
My fstab for the drives (there is two drives contained within a Sun StorEdge S1) reads:
/dev/da0s1b none swap sw 0 0
/dev/da0s1d /s none rw,noauto 0 0
/dev/da1s1b none swap sw 0 0
/dev/da1s2d /t none rw,noauto 0 0
I've mkdir -p both /s and /t as mount points
I've then put the following lines into /etc/amd.map
mount:="/sbin/mount mount /s";\
unmount:="/sbin/umount umount /s"
mount:="/sbin/mount mount /t";\
unmount:="/sbin/umount umount /t"
And finaly I've added the following to ,y /etc/rc.conf
amd_flags="-a /.amd_mnt -l syslog /host/etc/amd.map"
when i reboot the server the external drives are not mounted, but I do get a .snap file now in my / if this means anything ?
Am I missing a step here, or the point totally ??

To start with, yes. If you don't use "noauto", then the disk *has* to
be there at boot.
You might want to put in some devfs rules to mount the disks when they
show up. Or an automounter.
