How can I mount a non-booting pfSense volume?

  • Hi Folks,

    Disk failure strikes.  I would like to double check my backups against the last state before the failure.  I can view the disk and its partition table is valid, it just won't boot.

    I would like to boot a new install and then mount the old disk.  Can we do this?  If yes, how as a simple "mount /dev/ad0pX" fails with unknown filesystem type.

    Use "-t ufs" on the mount command. You'll probably need to run "fsck -y -t ufs /dev/ad0pX" first.
