Hi Rudy,

# tip vm1
Could not open backing file: No such file or directory

This is a valid error message from bhyve, and happens when the file attached to a block device can't be opened.


{...I hit ENTER 5 times here...}

 This is probably the delay due to core being dumped.

[1]    Segmentation fault            bhyve -c 2 -m 2048M -H -P -A -s
0:0,hostbridge -s 1:0,lpc -s 2:0,virtio-net,tap0 -s 3,ahci-cd,vm1.iso -l
com1,/dev/nmdm1A -s 4,virtio-blk,/dev/zvol/data/vm1 vm1 (core dumped)

I relaunched the VM and it works now...  Anyone seen issues with nmdm?

Try running in the foreground (-l com1,stdio) to see if bhyve can access the iso and zvol OK.

(There is a bug here in that bhyve should just exit out if the backing image doesn't exist rather than dumping core.)
