7 Configuring RAID1

Select ad1 and choose Unformated under Preformated FS (ad1 wasn't formated during FreeNAS installation):

Do the same for ad3:

On the Disks -> Management page, click on Apply changes:

Next we must format ad1 and ad3. Click on the Format tab (still under Disks -> Management), select ad1 and Software RAID: gmirror, then click on Format disk:

The next screen should be similar to this one:

ad1 and ad3 should now be listed on the Disks -> Management page with the file system gmirror:
