No such setup. This is my workstation, with wake-on-lan and pxe-boot disabled in bios. Checking boot messages provides a little more insight - Its not one but *both* NIC's that look for DHCP. Also, this is before root gets mounted, so what's in rc.conf is irrelevant: Sending DHCP Discover packet from interface re0 (mac#) Sending DHCP Discover packet from interface re1 (mac#) Received DHCP Offer packet on re0 from 192.168.1.1 (accepted) Received DHCP Offer packet on re0 from 192.168.1.1 (ignored) Received DHCP Offer packet on re0 from 192.168.1.1 (ignored) Sending DHCP Request packet from interface re0 (mac#) Received DHCP Ack packet on re0 from 192.168.1.1 (accepted) DHCP timeout for interface re1 re0 at 192.168.1.11 server 192.168.1.1 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 router 192.168.1.1 Adjusted interface re0 Shutdown interface re1 Trying to mount root from zfs:bsd ... I compile and use the same kernel for both host and pxe-booted diskless clients. So my kernel config file has options NFSCL # Network Filesystem Client options NFS_ROOT # NFS usable as /, requires NFSCL options BOOTP # Needed for non-btx PXE options BOOTP_NFSROOT # Needed for non-btx PXE It's probably what's causing this behavior. Kernel must receive IP before it can try and mount an NFS volume as root. However, I would have assumed that the "vfs.root.mountfrom=" setting in loader.conf would be read before such attempt... ----- FreeBSD-11-current_amd64_root-on-zfs_RadeonKMS -- View this message in context: http://freebsd.1045724.n5.nabble.com/Several-minor-annoyances-on-Current-tp5931653p5931678.html Sent from the freebsd-current mailing list archive at Nabble.com. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
