Starting with FreeBSD 7.2, the glabel(8) class
supports a new label type for UFS file
systems, based on the unique file system id, ufsid.
Is the above clause applicable in this case ? instead of using tunefs -L
can we use# glabel status ?
and can use the ufsid labels of /dev/ufsid/ and edit /etc/fstab entries for the partitions?
