So, what disk devices show up in /dev after reboot?  Note that /dev/ad?
style is old and /dev/ada? is the new standard.  In fact the /dev/adXpY
device entries should be symlinks to the appropriate /dev/adaNpY
devices.  Also note that device numbering is not particularly constant
over reboots -- if you boot with or without eg. a USB memstick plugged
in, it can cause everything to get renumbered.  This is why the advice
nowadays is to use gpart(8) to set a label on your filesystems and use
/dev/gpt/labelname in /etc/fstab
