Question Find Partition/Slice UUID

I thought I had figured this out at one point, but I can't remember. Is there a way/command to get the UUIDs of a disk's partitions/slices in FreeBSD? Linux has the blkid command, which doesn't seem to be available.

blkid is part of busybox, if you have that you can try busybox blkid.

Thanks, I'll try that out.

--- Edit ---

Apparently, busybox does not have blkid on FreeBSD. I did find it though, in the Port/Package sysutils/e2fsprogs.

It's a bit different though. Executing the command blkid without any arguments doesn't print anything. I have to point it to a device or devices:
Code:
$ blkid /dev/ad*
/dev/ad4s1: LABEL="GRUB" UUID="a01cbff7-216d-49ab-87ac-5f3e2fa91859" TYPE="ext2" 
/dev/ad4s3: UUID="5BBEAFDF7079F5E8" LABEL="Windows" TYPE="ntfs" 
/dev/ad4s5: LABEL="Debian" UUID="f56b8de1-3937-d001-e063-88e13937d001" TYPE="ext4" 
/dev/ad4s6: LABEL="Shared" UUID="3a5ae84b-66c1-4c0b-a2d5-9546a20d7111" TYPE="ext2" 
/dev/ad4s7: UUID="9a4906bd-aae0-4226-a604-001db362121c" TYPE="swap" 
/dev/ad8s1: UUID="01CDAAC34C08EB50" LABEL="Data" TYPE="ntfs" 
/dev/ada0s1: LABEL="GRUB" UUID="a01cbff7-216d-49ab-87ac-5f3e2fa91859" TYPE="ext2" 
/dev/ada0s3: UUID="5BBEAFDF7079F5E8" LABEL="Windows" TYPE="ntfs" 
/dev/ada0s5: LABEL="Debian" UUID="f56b8de1-3937-d001-e063-88e13937d001" TYPE="ext4" 
/dev/ada0s6: LABEL="Shared" UUID="3a5ae84b-66c1-4c0b-a2d5-9546a20d7111" TYPE="ext2" 
/dev/ada0s7: UUID="9a4906bd-aae0-4226-a604-001db362121c" TYPE="swap" 
/dev/ada1s1: UUID="01CDAAC34C08EB50" LABEL="Data" TYPE="ntfs"
