I poseted this via DejaNews a week ago and received no response, so I am sending directly to the mailing list in hopes of reaching more people. (Does it make a difference?) I kept it cryptic to save readers' time, but maybe too cryptic.
Basically I'm looking for start-up help with vinum, the disk mirroring software. I have read Lehey ch. 14 and the vinum man page, but still can't get it going. Obviously stuck on some trivial detail that has escaped me. If you can help I'd sure appreciate it.
Stuck in vinum setup, Invalid argument error.
FreeBSD 4.1 as server Two SCSI hard drives, da0 and da1 Goal: - root, usr, small windows share on da0 - apache web content on da1 - mirrored volume for user mail storage
Output of df:

Excerpted from man vinum:
Specify the device on which the drive resides. devicename must be the name of a disk parti- tion, for example /dev/da1e or /dev/wd3s2h, and it must be of type vinum. Do not use the c par- tition, which is reserved for the complete disk.
My hunch is I am either using the wrong name form, or when I created the slice
I used the wrong type (freebsd).
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
