A few questions for you.
(1) I want to get the same FreeNAS image working inside Bhyve and on
In the source code for /sbin/init, when it parses /etc/ttys,
if the entry does not exist, it prints out an error message about
not being able to find
the tty entry to open it.
Do you know if there is a way to specify an entry for /dev/ttyu2,
only if it
exists, and not print out an error message otherwise?
Not without modifying init :( This seems a very old Unix limitation.
(2) Is it possible to connect to the console of the BHyve VM via /dev/ttyu2
or some other mechanism? I would like to be able to connect to
the BHyve VM
and use something like Expect or py-expect to execute console
commands in the VM,
for automated testing.
Not currently - the only options you have are to run bhyve under
expect, or set up a network port and log in and run expect on commands.
I have what I think is a plan to fix this: maybe for 10.1.
