I have a system where a diskless FreeBSD 6.3 i386 machine boots with pxeboot from a FreeBSD 6.3 amd64 machine. I have lines in /etc/fstab for the diskless machine like: # Device MountPoint FsType Options Dump Pass 172.16.0.1:/usr /usr nfs rw 0 0 172.16.0.1:/mnt/d2/rootfs/root /root nfs rw 0 0 The machine boots from network nicely, then I can login as root and invoke these commands: mount -u -o rw / mount -u -o rw /usr mount -u -o rw /root There is no error message on the console, nor in the system log. However, this happens afterwards: diskless101#mkdir /aaa mkdir aaa: Read-only file system Question: if the remount did not succeed, why didn't it throw an error? If succeeded, why can't I write on the filesystem?
