freebsd 5.3-release works no problems, 5.4-release and higher (updates)
seem to not write vinum config to the disk. after creating a vinum
config, the device is able to be mounted fine (config loaded) but after
a reboot the config is no longer there and must be manually recreated to
access the vinum partition.
upon attempting to "resetconfig" on 5.4 the follow message is displayed :
vinum -> resetconfig
WARNING! This command will completely wipe out your vinum configuration.
All data will be lost. If you really want to do this, enter the text
Enter text -> NO FUTURE
Can't find vinum config: Inappropriate ioctl for device
if i create a vinum partition on a 5.3-release then the 5.4-release can
read it fine, but is unable to make changes to the vinum config.
ideas on changes between the two (5.3 - 5.4) that may have induced this
