    Other Is it possible to have my TPM decrypt my GELI drive?

    Similar to how BitLocker and LUKS partitions can be unlocked by the TPM. I was able to do it on my Debian system by adding an additional LUKS key and saving it in my TPM and when the system starts up, it asks for it from the TPM (my extremely basic understanding of it).

    Poor transfer rates on SATA drives on LSI SAS3008 controller

    This is a brand-new computer, so I don't know if this is an issue with this controller or some other kind of interaction within the system. Suggestions for troubleshooting are welcome. On a fresh install of FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE, I'm only getting about 70MB/s while doing a dd if=/dev/zero...

    Other FreeBSD fails to boot after loading empty hard disk as ada0 and claiming ada0p1 /boot/efi is corrupted and requires fsck_msdos

    I have a SATA 2.5" SSD connected to the onboard SATA connectors with ZFS-on-root FreeBSD installed. There are 9 hard disks connected: 8 via an LSI PCI-E card and one connected via SATA to the onboard SATA connector. For some reason FreeBSD boots off of the SSD but when setting up the disks it...

    disks over 2TB in size

    Just wondering if it has been considered to not auto select dos for the disk if the disk is detected to be over 2TB? GPT works but it'd be nice to have it just work automatically?

    UFS a partition extension scenario

    I have the following sutuation in my PC and I would like to extend the size of the FreeBSD partition -partition number 13.

    TRIM does not work correctly on the Samsung drive!

    The problem is this. As you know, the essence of TRIM is to clean up blocks that are no longer needed by the file system in the background, or with minimal impact on performance. On my own system, the picture is as follows. We create a file of 2 GB in size, delete it, and the disk spends all its...

    This is a public "note to self" that I hope will be useful to somebody out there. This evening I wanted to install FreeBSD in a VM under KVM on a Linux VM-host. Also, when I install FreeBSD with ZFS (Read: Always), I like to partition and setup the disks by hand via the "Shell" option in the...

    How to shutdown/reboot the cleanest possible way

    This, from a different discussion, reminded me that I wanted to ask a question ages ago, but never got around to asking. A long time ago I did a basic UNIX course, on System V I think it was, and the instructor said "do a sync before you shutdown, this will ensure disk cache is written out"...

    Hi, It is a new install on an old IBM tower server. I have played with 10.x 32 and 64 bit on it before but this is 64bit 11.1. I think there is an issue with a hard disk but it seems inconsistent. The server is an IBM 84852AU 206m. The boot drive is a SATA 64GB ssd taken from and HP proliant...
