I'm converting some Xen/Debian/Windows domain servers to FreeBSD/Bhyve/Samba domain servers. Windows is still required for a couple of applications, but I've recently had enough success with Samba4 to try this. Not the problem.
The machines have two disks (was RAID-1 before, will be RAID-1 after) and I've run the FreeBSD install on one disk leaving the other alone. I'd like to copy off some of what's on the other disk, so I set about trying to read it. BHYVE ATTEMPT Believe-it-or-not, I tried bhyve first. Being the more complex solution, of course. I tried booting the other disk in bhyve. I chalked that failure up to it still being a Xen config... wasn't sure how that would boot for fail under bhyve... so I grabbed a debian live CD from the net and tried to boot it. Now, I'm following the directions from https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/virtualization-host-bhyve.html ... And the error both times was failing to find init. Both booting the CD _and_ booting the disk. I can't seem to find any further documentation on my problem. Linux boots to it's initrd filesystem state and fails to leave it because it (claims it) can't find /sbin/init (even though in the CD case, it's there) GEOM ATTEMPT After this fail, I decided I didn't really _need_ to run linux here and I discovered 'geom_linux_lvm.ko' ... cool. But fail, too. Doesn't emit any messages. I even enabled the debug messages for it. The linux disk is partitioned thusly: => 63 1953525105 ada1 MBR (932G) 63 1985 - free - (993K) 2048 1953523120 1 linux-data [active] (932G) _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
