I'm trying to export a disk on FreeBSD 9.0-R4
over AoE (ATA over Ethernet) using vblade from

I run this as root:
# vblade 1 1 em0 /dev/ada1

and the system returns this:

  ioctl returned -1
  0 bytes
  pid 2629: e1.1, 0 sectors O_RDWR

The drive nicely shows up on OSX and Linux as
e1.1 but is has size 0 bytes and thus unusable.

Has anyone successfully export a disk using AoE
on FreeBSD that can shed some light on what I might
be doing wrong? How do i get it to export the disk
as 230 GB, the size of the disk?

thanks in advance,

Arno Beekman
