    when making one of these should you make a partition on the disc(s) and format them or have them completely blank?

    i have used

    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad6 bs=1k count=1
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad8 bs=1k count=1
    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad10 bs=1k count=1


    to completely wipe them so they have nothing on them, so is it a case of me just doing

    gconcat label -v 1tb /dev/ad6 /dev/ad8 /dev/ad10
    newfs /dev/concat/1tb
    mount /dev/concat/1tb /store

    ????

    yar, and you will probably want to add -U to that newfs.

    ok so they should be blank before i concat them (which is what im guessing the yar was in reference too :p), which they are (or were) and what's the U flag for (edit: found out its soft updates)

    so in furture i shall have to remember newfs -U /dev/concat/1tb

    edit2: little tunefs -n enable /dev/concat/1tb - should fix it :p
