You were right - I missed the init step.
You were also right that init is a really slow process; it’s still going after 7 days… does that seem normal?
Also, every time I run vinum lp I get errors in /var/log/messages.
loki# vinum lp
P storage.p0 R5 State: initializing Subdisks: 6 Size: 9315 GB
loki# tail -n 2 /var/log/messages
Sep 30 06:32:24 loki kernel: vinumioctl: invalid ioctl from process 17520 (vinum): 40906468
Sep 30 06:32:24 loki kernel: vinumioctl: invalid ioctl from process 17521 (vinum): 40906468
(It’s two rows each time.)
I’m fine to keep waiting for a really long init, I’m just starting to think it will never finish…
