    Operation not permitted from dd

    I need to update the bootsector after upgrading zfs pool. In 10.3 the command to disable the Operation not permitted error was: sysctl kern.geom.debugflags=0x10 But that doesn't seem to work in 11.0: root@crayon2:~ # sysctl kern.geom.debugflags=0x10 kern.geom.debugflags: 16 -> 16...

    /boot/entropy and zfs bootpool

    When installing a new FreeBSD 11.0 with zfs root, the installer creates 2 zfs pools and puts the contents of /boot in zfs:bootpool/boot. /boot is a symlink pointing to /bootpool/boot Normal boot process then does not mount bootpool (nice little security extra there) so the /boot symlink points...

    Hi! Recently I've upgraded a FreeBSD server from v. 9.3 to v. 11.0 (through 10.3 because it "cowardly" refused to continue). The system was using the old pkg_ so I deinstalled all ports and after the final update I freshly installed all of them. I am using OpenLDAP on this system -...

    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.

    Boot environments and FreeBSD 10.3

    I have been using boot environments with ZFS on PC-BSD/TrueOS for a year or so now and really like them. It's nice to be able to reboot and simply rollback the last update if something went wrong. Since FreeBSD 10.3 reports supports for boot environments I gave it a whirl today. I installed the...
