newfs is the tool used to create new filesystems on existing physical volumes. Many, MANY different arguments can be passed to newfs to control the types of filesystem created and various arcane details, but typically the only argument needed or wanted is -U (to enable Soft Updates on the volume formatted).

Typical usage:

server# newfs -U /dev/ad0s1f
