(FIXED) HP Install issues & RRD graph failures
Do NOT change architectures when doing an upgrade… bad things will happen. If you are on 1.2.3, stick with I386.
If you are using HP ILO or other OoB management interfaces to present the ISO and you are encounter the error in post #2, enter "cd9660:/dev/iso9660/pfSense" (no quotes) at the error prompt. This could also occur with other drive types.
Background: I have a HP DL360 G6 server that I was attempting to install 2.0 beta on (for a lab) and I could not get the 2.0 iso to install (BSD has issues remounting the CD filesystem using HP ILO -- not sure why). I was able to install 1.2.3-Release and ran a console upgrade to 2.0 (Sept. 30 snapshot AMD64). Things started fine, but I was still getting progress indicators (.............) after 45minutes. I figured it failed, but when I rebooted, I was greeted with 2.0. Not trusting this build, I wan a firmware update from the web GUI which was successful.
At this point, everything appears to be working with the exception of RRD graphs. The errors I receive are similar and all related to the ARCH, see below:
php: /status_rrd_graph_img.php: Failed to create graph with error code 1, the error is: ERROR: This RRD was created on other architecture/usr/bin/nice -n20 /usr/local/bin/rrdtool graph /tmp/system-processor.rrd-4year.png --start 1167523200 --end 1285867173 --vertical-label "utilization, number" --color SHADEA#eeeeee --color SHADEB#eeeeee --title "

Is there anything I can do to correct this, am I in a half upgraded state?
FYI: The attached image shows the error installing 2.0 from iso (this happened on A64 & x86).
at this point seemed to work… I.ll follow-up with results shortly. (At first glance, it seems like the detection process on the ILO virtual cd is too slow and causes a failure.)
Good news: Once I installed the AMD64 from the iso cleanly by remounting the rootfs, everything including the RRD graphs appear to be working. The version I'm currently running is:
2.0-BETA4 (amd64) built on Thu Sep 30 21:08:20 UTC 2010
Hope this helps someone else.
