I read a couple of people updated just fine so I updated one of our servers without issue but, when I updated my workstation, it gets as far as bringing up the eight CPUs on my system, then blurts out some hex code too quickly for me to read, and reboots. I am unable to get into single user mode...
I'm having an issue with freebsd-update stalling when checking for updates. The stall happens at different stages each time I run it.
My server is only used for backup purposes, so it has 0.0% load on it at all times. Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this?
When it stalls, the cursor...
I would like to start using jails but I have a few questions regarding updating them.
I'm running 11-stable on the host and would like to run 11.1-release in the jails.
I'm wondering if I can use freebsd-update to update the 11.1-release jails even when running 11-stable on the host.
if this is a tedious question but I can not find an answer.
Assuming that I, or anyone, have upgrade FreeBSD with his own kernel settings (not GENERIC) by compiling it.
Also, I or anyone, has been build the Userland with make buildworld with own settings in /etc/src.conf.
After all is...
I built a custom kernel with TCP_FASTOPEN for Bind and am wondering why freebsd-update fetch is showing kernel updates for Generic.
Here are my steps for custom kernel:
cp GENERIC TCPOPEN
mv TCPOPEN /root/kernels/TCPOPEN
ln -s /root/kernels/TCPOPEN
I greatly dread the inevitiable "Please rebuild all installed 3rd party software" message from freebsd-update and I'm convinced there are ways to reduce the pain. I seek advice.
It seems to me that the primary intent for the universal rebuild is to remove all previous version library...
Hi all, during the upgrade from 11.0-RELEASE-p9 to 11.1-RELEASE this message appears:

I upgraded work host to 11.1-RELEASE this morning using the following commands:

I'm posting this partly in public celebration of my own stupidity o_O, but mostly because I found a lack of pertinent results when searching the web for...
I downloaded the FreeBSD 11.0-Release cd image and installed it on VirtualBox for testing. While I can install from both pkgs and ports, I have been unable to update the installation to the latest security updates by using freebsd-update fetch install.
The command always end up displaying that...

That looks interesting. I'd be interested in receiving an email each time updates are available.
However I guess this would require me to install and configure sendmail, postfix or something like that to send me e-mails over the internet...
I read that freebsd-update uses the /etc/freebsd-update.conf file to determine which components to update.
The /etc/freebsd-update.conf file of my host contains the following line:
Components src world kernel
So I'm guessing that each time I'm trying to update a jail using...
I'm trying to create jails and keep them up to date and secure.
I don't know if I should add the src component to my jails.
As of now, I only download base.txz, lib32.txz and doc.txz from http://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/amd64/amd64/11.0-RELEASE/ , extract them in a directory...
I've a simple question. I'm not system administrator so maybe my knowledge is a bit outdated.
So, I've 4 simple, cheap VPS servers (web, builder, devel (port maintaining) and backup) and it's a little complicated thing to login to every server and run pkg upgrade or freebsd-update fetch...
Trying /usr/sbin/freebsd-update fetch and I'm getting the following errors:

despite reading and re-reading the manual, I have an extremely hard time understanding how to keep my FreeBSD host and my FreeBSD jails secure.
I am going to try to express my current understanding of FreeBSD as maybe the problem is that I don't understand it.
There seems to be on one...
Since I have quite a few FreeBSD installations on a totally closed network, I'm looking to
create a local mirror to update/upgrade these installations.

This may or may not be what I need, but I have questions
Just a help for those having same problem with the same problem. This problem occurred after I upgrade my VPS to FreeBSD 11.0, only one machine has this problem. I tried everything I can do to fix it but none works.
Today I found the source of the problem and got it fixed. Here is the solution...
