I went ahead and did installworld. The IPFW problem dissapeared
immediatly. All I had to do was add the smmsp user as per UPDATING, and it
went slick from there.
Small issues were:
- a depricated line in sshd_config, which I manually commented out
- sig 11 on nmbd, for which I will upgrade samba (should fix it)
All in all, I am very exited as my amanda box now uname -a with
FreeBSD-4.8RC, and is back in full production.
I have began syncing source on my mission critical boxes, and plan on
starting the upgrade on them next week.
I did mergemaster on amanda box, but must of did something wrong as
afterwards, my /etc/master.passwd file was missing. Copied it back from
backup and all is well. mergemaster didn't seem to touch anything except
for it, so next time I will likely just do the manual thing.
Thanks for all of your help, which gave me the confidence to proceed in
this delicate manner.
However, I should of known that with the stability of Free that I really
had nothing to worry about from the beginning!
