How To Making Dedicated Mode Disks Using The Command Line Freebsd

Execute the following commands, replacing ad2 with the disk name.

#dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad2 count=2
#disklabel /dev/ad2 | disklabel -B -R -r ad2 /dev/stdin
We only want one partition, so using slice 'c' should be fine:
#newfs /dev/ad2c

If you need to edit the disklabel to create multiple partitions (such as swap), use the following:

#dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad2 count=2
#disklabel /dev/ad2 > /tmp/label

Edit disklabel to add partitions:
#vi /tmp/label
#disklabel -B -R -r ad2 /tmp/label
newfs partitions appropriately
