I've the Handbook's chapter on GEOM, gmirror(1), geom(8), ggated(8),
and ggatec(8), and I've search the web for a solution to the
I would like to mirror a single partition on system A to a
a partition on system B. It would appear a combination of
gmirror and ggated would work, but I haven't found any
example on setting up two systems.
To be specific, /etc/fstab on the 2 systems is
# Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass#
/dev/ad4s1b none swap sw 0 0
/dev/ad4s1a / ufs rw 1 1
/dev/ad4s1e /data ufs rw 2 2
/dev/ad4s1d /usr ufs rw 2 2
I want to mirror 192.168.0.20:/dev/ad4s1e to 192.168.0.21:/dev/ad4s1e
Anyone have a pointer to a howto or tutorial on setting this up?
