Radvd does not start on startup (empty config file)

  • I have rebooted my box and then noticed that radvd was not running because of this empty config file:

    [2.1-BETA0][root@box]/root(1): cat /var/etc/radvd.conf 
    # Automatically Generated, do not edit

    After re-saving the LAN interface without changing anything:

    [2.1-BETA0][root@box]/root(2): cat /var/etc/radvd.conf
    # Automatically Generated, do not edit
    # Generated for DHCPv6 Server lan
    interface em0 {
            AdvSendAdvert on;
            MinRtrAdvInterval 5;
            MaxRtrAdvInterval 20;
            AdvLinkMTU 1280;
            AdvDefaultPreference medium;
            prefix x:y:1014:215:0:0:0:0/64 {
                    DeprecatePrefix on;
                    AdvOnLink on;
                    AdvAutonomous on;
                    AdvRouterAddr on;
            route ::/0 {
                    RemoveRoute on;
            RDNSS x:y:1014:215:222:4dff:fe6b:73fc { };
            DNSSL localdomain { };

    I am running:
    2.1-BETA0 (i386)
    built on Tue Sep 4 16:39:17 EDT 2012
    FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p4

    Normally I would have said the problem was with this build, but I have just upgraded from an August 23rd build that had the same issue.
