Default OpenBSD raw image creation with partitions

Hi,

How can I create image on openbsd 6.7 build host using /dev/vnd1a or /dev/rsd ?

I want to create image with many partition and install few pkgs in image during image creation.

I used vnconfig but it failed with device not configured

Hello. vnconfig(8) is used with standard files in a filesystem. You can use dd(1) to create a sparse image file, but vmctl(8) is an easier tool to produce the same thing. For example, $ vmctl create -s 10g my.drive. Once created, vnconfig(8) can then be used to provision a vnd(4) device using the image file. For example, # vnconfig vnd0 my.drive. After that, fdisk(8), disklabel(8), newfs(8), and mount(8) can all be used as you would with a "real" disk drive, using /dev/[r]vnd0{a-p}.
