I just applied the FreeBSD-SA-04:04.tcp patch onto my 4.9-STABLE box and rebooted.

On more than one occasion FreeBSD boots into single user mode and awaits for someone to enter the default shell path. This becomes a problem since the server is remote - is there a way to not have it boot into single user mode after we recompile the kernel?

(please reply to all, i'm not on this list)

TIA, Patrick Fish

I would suggest that something is wrong. FreeBSD generally doesn't boot into single user mode unless it's either told to, or has to. The most likely probable cause is a bad HDD*, but there may be other possibilities.

What happens after someone does enter the default shell
path?  Does another reboot cure the problem?  What
console messages (if any, but there should be some)
appear to be abnormal prior to the boot prompt?
