I have a server with two nvme disks of the same model. When I run geom disk list I get the following (with lunid and ident redacted slightly):
root@server:~ # geom disk list
Geom name: nvd0
1. Name: nvd0
Mediasize: 512110190592 (477G)
I created raidz with labels and geoms /dev/ada1pX /dev/ada2pX /dev/ada3pX /dev/ada3pX as well as /dev/gpt/$labels existed before reboot.
It was like this:

Guys I changed my disks in my T430 to make a better backup routine. Before I had a strip with 3 ssd's with 1 tb each. I changed to root in a 240gb, home in a 1tb, and I left 1tb for dual booting with OBSD. And the last 1tb I took out of the note and put it in a case for external use. Everything...
I have the GELI key, but the associated pool (HDDs) unavailable currently (phisically).
Can I check my password(s) with the keyfile only, without the encrypted media?
If I know, the keyfile contains the keychain(s), protected by password(s). I would like to check this password, but without...
I recently decided to move my FreeBSD installation onto a new drive. Since I was using ZFS, I achieved this by inserting the new drive, and then using the memstick installer on a USB drive to perform a basic install. After this I dropped to a shell, unmounted all the destination datasets...
I am configuring a gstripe of 2 disks, one of 8TB and another of 4TB, the stripe seems to be created correctly but with reduced size:
odyssey # ~> gstripe label -v st0 /dev/ada2 /dev/ada3
Metadata value stored on /dev/ada2.
warning: /dev/ada3: only 4000787029504 bytes from 8001563221504 bytes...
I would like to multi-boot FreeBSD[13.1-RESEASE], OpenBSD[7.1] and Debian[sid] on my SSD.
Before doing it on physical disks, I tried it on VirtualBox on my FreeBSD-13.1-RELEASE.
I installed OpenBSD on ada0p4 with full disk encryption.
To do/practice it twice, I booted into FreeBSD, delete and...
To reorganise my zfs server, I need to vacate the tank, temporarily. It's currently configured with 5 x 3 TB disks in RAID-Z1 format. These disks are nearly 10 years old. Two of the originals have failed already, and I want to move to RAID-Z2 as soon as possible. I already have two spare...
I'm having an issue with bootcode upgrade after zfs features upgrade. FreeBSD's suggestion is this
gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/gptzfsboot -i 1 da0
but this doesn't work because there is no da0. Instead I use ada0, the only SSD fully owned by ZFS. However, the result is an error...

I am working on embedded project based on freebsd.
It is looking into having a NVMe device.
I am newbie for freebsd. Based on the handbook, the Freebsd doesn't support the block layer as Linux does.
I am assuming the file system driver (example, ext2fs) will be able to mount with NVMe driver...
I have an geom_uzip image and what I'm confused about is the following. The first few lines of the image file are as follows:

But when I try to execute them manually they...
Hello all. This is my first post. I have considered giving FreeBSD a try for a while and have decided now would be a good time although I may have bitten off more than I can chew.
I am trying to install the OS on my fake raid but it is not working. I don't even know if it is possible in this...
I am an idiot.
I have no backup. Nothing critically important, but 6 TB of personal data I would sorely like to recover. I solemnly swear to create real backups first, before anything else, if I can get this working again.
I'm a newbie to FreeBSD. This new FreeBSD system is replacing an old...
I'm developing GEOM provider/consumer and looking through the existing code to learn. And in process of that started to question the usage necessity of bio queue (bio_queue_head) in some cases.
There are a lot of cases when a pattern for functions such as g_*_read or g_*_flush is like so:
My new FreeBSD 10.2 server consists of one SSD for the base system, several HDDs for data storage and a hot swap bay which I use for backups. All drives are encrypted with geli and I use ZFS on all internal disks. I have written a small script to automatically attach encrypted disk, import ZFS...
