Let's say you've booted the FreeBSD OS on a different machine and drive name was change. For example instead of ada0p5 your swap partition is now ada2p5 (your drive is seen as ada2 instead of ada0). Until you change fstab it is possible to manually setup your new partition to be seen as swap partition using swapon command:

  swapon /dev/ada2p5

If you are not sure which is swap partition you can find that info with:

  gpart show
