PfSense 2.1.5 - Mirrored ZFS on root boot problem



  • Hello,

    I've set up pfSense (2.1.5) root on ZFS mirror install following that guide: https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=71953.0

    Rebooted my pfSense box and everything runs smooth then I wanted to test if it boots from the second hard disk in a mirror (the main reason I use mirrored zfs setup). I unplugged the first hard disk and plugged the second one to the first SATA port on my board (as we all know FreeBSD can only boot from first hard disk for now). It boots fine until it comes to mounting ZFS pool and gives the ROOT mount error. The bootcode is written to both disks and it should boot just fine but it doesn't. Do you guys have any ideas why it happens?

    Thanks for any help!
