Hi all, I ran into an unexpected problem today, when I tried to do an in-place upgrade from FreeBSD 5.5 (actually RELENG_5) to 6-STABLE, following the procedure in /usr/src/UPDATING.
The buildworld and buildkernel went without a hitch, and installkernel was fine, too. When I rebooted to single-user, though, the fsck -p step reported that my /usr partition was bad, and unfixable. Something about not being able to find a good superblock, but I didn't copy down the details. The root partition was OK, though, so I upgraded the mount to r/w and moved /boot/kernel out of the way to /boot/kernel.6 and moved /boot/kernel.old back to /boot/kernel, and rebooted back to multi-user in 5.5. The system claimed that /usr had not been unmounted properly, and fired off a background fsck, which finished without finding any problems. I tried this twice (since fsck had given the /usr partition a clean bill of health again), and it failed the same way the second time. Any thoughts on what could be going wrong? This is a server, using ataraid to bind a pair of SATA drives into a mirrored pair. I had good success previously, with an in-place upgrade of my workstation from RELENG_5 to RELENG_6, but that wasn't using ataraid.
