Hi I brought this up earlier, but didn't have as much to go on as I do now. So I'd like to try this again; On a recent(ish) install of CURRENT followed by a new kernel/world. I'm finding I can't depend on geom(8) for anything, but the primary (SATA3) drive, it's installed on (if even that). To the point; Blanking/partitioning/formatting a usb memstick to to dump(8) this system to, works fine *until* I reboot. Where I'm greeted with GEOM: da0: the secondary secondary GPT table is corrupt or invalid .. GEOM: diskid/DISK-... : the secondary GTP table is corrupt or invalid .. using the primary only --
gpart recover returns the status to OK, *until* I reboot. Where I'm greeted by the same BS. OK I can't live with this, so I grab a usb2 external drive off the shelf, and try it again. blank/partition/newfs && fsck mounted the partitions on /mnt and performed a restore. Reboot; && get the corrupt GPT message. So. I spin up an old 11 server I have sitting in the closet, with this external drive attached to it. I do *NOT* get the corrupt GPT message. So I blank/partition/newfs the external drive && mount the partitions individually to /mnt && restore again. When I reboot to the external drive still connected to the old 11 server, I do *NOT* receive the corrupt GPT message. WooHoo! I think. So I re-attach the drive to the new 12 server. Reboot, and can't boot to it && get the corrupt GPT message. GEOM seems to be broken in 12, maybe even (recent) 11. As the 11 server I used for testing is ~9 mos out. What can I do to (help?) fix this mess? --Chris See also: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=218026 Thanks! _______________________________________________ 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"
