I have a drive (/dev/ad2s1d) mounted to /backup that I want to be read only until the backup scripts run and then it will be read/write. If I set /etc/fstab to:

/dev/ad2s1d /backup ufs ro 0 0

to mount it read only most of the time then do:

umount /backup
mount -o rw /backup

the system crashes, it just reboots about 10 seconds into writing data. The system is perfectly stable with it mounted read/write.

Also, dmesg.boot has completely disappeared from the system, and touch /var/log/dmesg.boot it does not get populated.

# uname -a

Any suggestions on the remounting drive and dmesg.boot?



P.S. It's good to be off of FreeBSD 4.11 :)
