I have a two disk array that I want to move to another machine. It

set it up under a new machine? Should I simply load the old

Vinum should find and use the existing configuration.
Well, it hasn't been that easy. The new machine is running 5.3. At
boot I receive:
panic: umount: dangling vnode
/ /when vinum loads at boot. I get around this by starting vinum from
rc.local. The vinum device node (named stripe in this case) isn't in
/dev/vinum. Do I need to create it on the new machine. I placed the
old config file in /etc/vinum.conf. Is vinum supposed to create the
nodes automatically? Thanks much.
