Subject:   enabling TRIM on an existing UFS file system ?
Message-ID:  <554CCE55.9090307@sentex.net>

I noticed TRIM was not enabled on an existing SSD drive, so I thought I 
would shut the box to single usermode and enable it.

# tunefs -t enable /dev/ada0p2
# tunefs -p /dev/ada0p2

tunefs: optimization preference: (-o)                      time
tunefs: volume label: (-L)
# exit

But once I boot up, it seems to be disabled again ?

0(mdt)# tunefs -p /dev/ada0p2

the SSD seems to report that it does support TRIM

This is an mSata drive in an Alix APU. Is it possible it really does not 
support it ?
