Usually, another reboot fixes the problem, yes. However, this last time was due to some /etc/fstab error, don't have the exact error since the folks at the NOC couldn't remember it, I finally got it fixed, not sure how, but the idents wern't in fstab...I added them back and it worked for some reason. I suspect it might drop into single user mode to fsck...but from my experiences with the boxes I have here, it does that on a normal boot if it needs to, not single user... > > Kevin Kinsey > DaleCo, S.P. > > > More specifically, bad sectors or whatnot; anything requiring a > fsck.... _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
