Great article
but i think there is a minor typo.
gpart add -b 2048 -s 3906824301 -t freebsd-zfs -l disk00 ad0

Should these commands read gpart add -b 2048 -s 3906824301 -t freebsd-zfs -l disk00 ada0

change ad0 to ada0

Another question.
Why not label the disk with glabel.

And best wishes with the arm.....

regards,
Johan

ad0 changed to ada0

I seem to recall that coming up... I think gpart overwrites what glabel does. A test would confirm, but I have no spare HDD. I guess I could use a file...

Thanks. It hurts all the time.
