  Implementing Hardware RAID on FreeBSD
Subject:   Great article...

I understood everything except this:

mount -r /dev/da0s1a OLD
mount -r /dev/da0s1e OLD/var
mount -r /dev/da0s1f OLD/tmp
mount -r /dev/da0s1g OLD/usr
mount -r /dev/da0s1h OLD/usr/home
Next, I mounted the new filesystem.


mount /dev/da0s1a NEW
mount /dev/da0s1e NEW/var
mount /dev/da0s1f NEW/tmp
mount /dev/da0s1g NEW/usr
mount /dev/da0s1h NEW/usr/home


The device names seem to be the same in both. Shouldn't the OLD mount commands list the OLD hard drives? That threw me for a loop.


Otherwise great job! I understood the article, even as a relative newcomer to UNIX and FreeBSD, and am hoping to implement some of the concepts on a fileserver I am setting up.
