    Solved Not enough space to write bootcode after root zpool upgrade

    I recently upgraded one of my storage severs from 10.3 -> 11.0, and then went to perform the zpool upgrade to enable the new hashing methods available on the root pool.

    On pfSense 2.2.4 (FreeBSD 10.1), my custom init script filebeat_wrapper won't start at boot.
