I had not even thought about trying that. The first raid is
autoconfigured, as I boot from that. The second was not.
I just tried autoconfiguring raid1 also and removed the "#BEFORE:
cgd"-line from /etc/rc.d/raidframe and it worked like a charm.
The reason I reacted was that it didn't work as it did in 5.0, but then
maybe it is better to have things as they are now, now you can do both
raid on cgd and cgd on raid. :-)
Thanks for the help!
If you don't shoot the bearers of bad news, people will keep bringing it to you.
