Yeah, that's the puzzle for me. There are two internal disks and one external, as the main/boot disk started to fail and I turned the internal clone I kept updated into the boot disk. What I can't figure out is how to change the boot disk without sitting in front of the console or even find out what it is. It should be booting and running on ad3 where it used to be ad2. ad2 in in the chassis but not doing anything, just spinning. sysctl will reveal the booting kernel but does it reveal the boot device?
