If I have raidframe on hardwired drives, the kernel autoconfigures them at boot-time. Suppose, though, that I have a raidframe drive connected via USB. When I plug it in and do 'disklabel sd0', I see that sd0a and sd0e are of type RAID, which is correct. I do not have easy access to the original raid?.conf files, though I could probably retrieve them if I needed to, but in theory that shouldn't be necessary -- if the kernel can autoconfigure the drives, why can't user-level? If the drive is plugged in at boot, is it autoconfigured? It seems like raidctl needs an option to tell the kernel to rerun the autoconf scan.
