Default root on ZFS

Hi everyone,

I have been experimenting lately with ZFS boot on FreeBSD. I have performed different kind of methods and I've reached to the conclusion that using the "vfs.root.mountfrom" method instead of traditional fstab mounts is more flexible. However, when I try to perform an installation using this guide my system boots and doesn't mount /usr /var /tmp patitions

I can only boot to single user mode with readonly ZFS /

I suspect that it has something to do with:
Code:
'vfs.root.mountfrom="zfs:zroot"'
maybe it should be ?
Code:
'vfs.root.mountfrom="zfs:zroot/root"'
From the Fixit environment I can see all the mount points

Please some help!!!
