This is on FreeBSD 5.4 latest stable snapshot on January.
I've followed the instructions at:
http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2005/11/10/FreeBSD_Basics.html for creating software RAID, which appears to have been successful. the raid created, and synched, couple of reboots all is good.
So I wanted to test it out, I've unplugged one of the drives and rebooted, however, I've received the error:
ffs_mountroot: can't find rootvp
Root mount failed: 6
It doesn't matter which disk I unplug, it gives the same result. I've attempted to remount:
no luck. so I looked over:
and added the 'options GEOM_MIRROR' to Kernel, then recompiled, installed and restarted, the machine would hang completely just when loading the AD drives.
Are the articles missing any steps ? any help is appreciated.
