Trying to mount root from ufs dev ad0s1a



  • I just installed pfsense 2.0 and had it running for about 3 hours and all of the sudden it froze up and when I rebooted I had the error message below.  Any suggestions on how to fix this issue? Thx

    This sort of thing is sometimes seen when pfSense doesn't shutdown cleanly (e.g. panic or power fail).

    On my last reboot I saw:

    Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad0s1a
    WARNING: / was not properly dismounted
    WARNING: R/W mount of / denied.  Filesystem is not clean - run fsck

    I think the mount failure might be fairly serious and you may need to boot another FreeBSD image and use that to run fsck on /dev/ad0s1a to repair it. You might be able to boot from a FreeBSD or pfSense USB stick.



  • when I run fsck  /dev/ad0s1a I get the error message below.  Any suggestions

    fsck cannot determine file system type automatically



  • Well I re-installed the pfsense. Then I was installing my configs and after a while pfsense just locked up.  I did a hard boot and it came back up but on the console screen and serial screen it just hangs on the message below.  I think of doing another re-install maybe this time not use the 64bit version but just use the 32bit version please let me know what you think. thx

  • Using the 32-bit version may provide some additional information.



  • Did not do a reinstall I did a fsck -t ufs /dev/ad0s1a and everything was clean but I still get a trying to mount from ufs:/dev/ad0s1a at the console screen and just hangs their.  But I am log into the web gui of pfsense and I am passing traffic through and making changes with no problem.  This is very weird.
