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

????

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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
