Change usr directory to other HDD / Partition

to change the usr directory in freebsd (i already make it)
add new hdd to your server, format it. let say i give the new patition is /usr2
after finish format

cd /usr2
dump 0af - /usr | restore rf -

After the dump completed, edited /etc/fstab.
Delete the line with /usr in /etc/fstab.
Updated the line with /usr2, changed /usr2 for /usr. (inside fstab)
Then rebooted. Finally the system started with a new /usr filesystem.
