I've researched this before. But I upgraded FreeBSD 11 to the latest patch level and the patch is installed. BUT it won't boot. I follow all the steps to upgrade and I see it there when I run:

Code:
root@tsg-freebsd01:~ # freebsd-version
11.0-RELEASE-p11
root@tsg-freebsd01:~ #
But can't get it to be my boot kernel.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

What is the error you're getting when trying to boot? The last patch did update the kernel but if the system booted before it should still boot. The update did not change anything related to booting the system.

You're not upgrading. You need to run freebsd-update fetch install. The upgrade option is for upgrading from one version to another (10.3 -> 11.0 or 11.0 -> 11.1 for example).

I ran this previously:

Here is the output:

Code:
root@tsg-freebsd01:~ # freebsd-update fetch install

The following files will be updated as part of updating to 11.0-RELEASE-p11:
/usr/share/man/mandoc.db
/usr/share/openssl/man/mandoc.db

Then your system already has all the latest patches for 11.0 installed and you just need to reboot.

Ok that worked...but it went to p9 instead.

Code:
$ uname -a
FreeBSD tsg-freebsd01 11.0-RELEASE-p9 FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p9 #0: Tue Apr 11 08:42:58 UTC 2017     root@amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386

That's possible. The last 2 updates apparently didn't involve changes to the kernel.
