After upgrade from 10.0 to 10.1 using freebsd-upgrade the system failed to
boot. Investigating revealed that one of the devices in fstab no longer
appeared to exist.
The disk configuration is a Dell Raid system with the primary data disk
located on the first raid device and the bootable system on the second
# Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass#
/dev/amrd1p2 / ufs rw 1 1
/dev/amrd1p3 none swap sw 0 0
#/dev/amrd0p1 /disk0 ufs rw 2 2
I was able to comment out the line for /disk0 and now the system boots.
However /dev/amrd0p1 no longer exists although /dev/amrd0 does.
gpart show -lp
=> 63 1171783617 amrd0 MBR (559G)
63 1171783617 - free - (559G)
=> 34 286515133 amrd1 GPT (137G)
34 128 amrd1p1 (null) (64K)
162 276823936 amrd1p2 (null) (132G)
276824098 8388608 amrd1p3 (null) (4.0G)
285212706 1302461 - free - (636M)
Seems to indicate that the amrd0 raid array has been converted to MBR
So my questions are:
1) Why did this happen?
2) Is it possible to recover the data disk?
