After adding geom_raid_load="YES" to my /boot/loader.conf, it still didn't create the device on bootup. I had to manually create the label with graid. After that it created /dev/raid/ar0 for me and I could mount the volume. Only thing which I've trying to understand is the last message below about the integrity check failed. I've found other posts on this but when I dig into my setup, I don't see the same problems that are illustrated in the post and am at a loss for why that is being stated. Also, on other posts I think it was (raid/r0, MBR) that people were getting and trying to fix. Mine is (raid/r0, BSD) which I cannot find reference to. I have a feeling it has to do with the geometry of the disk or something. Everything else seems fine... I admittedly only use this volume for scratch space and didn't have anything important st

Thanks for responding, Alexander. I also found that information about that sysctl variable, however I was trying to determine if something is actually wrong, how to determine what it is and ultimately how to fix it so it passes the check. I'd rather not ignore errors/warnings unless it's a bug. Again, I have no data of value on this partition, so I can do anything to fix it. Just not sure what to do or look at specifically.
