Hi Craig,

Does anyone have any ideas what the fix for this should be?

 You'll have to edit the /etc/ttys file and

-ttyu2   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   dialup  off secure
+ttyu2   "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600"   vt100   on secure

 bhyve is ttyu2 rather than ttyu0 since it emulates a PCI serial port.

Maybe this could go into the FreeNAS repo - I've never really understood the aversion to having logins open on the serial ports by default. Seems a relic of 1980's Unix dialup modems.

It would be handy to boot FreeNAS inside BHyve, especially for testing.  I
don't get this problem under QEMU, Virtualbox, or VMWare still work.

All of those have VGA emulation which will pop up logins on the ttyv* devices. Work on that is underway for bhyve.
