2.2 Update, Old Kernel
I noticed after doing a auto-update from 2.1.1 snapshots to the latest 2.2 snapshot that pfSense is still displaying "FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p14" on the Dashboard.
Is this common or have something gone wrong during the update?
Moving this to its own thread…
That's not common. Last time that happened it was because the previous install was using a different type of kernel that the snapshot didn't include.
What does the full "uname -a" show?
What is in /boot/kernel/pfsense_kernel.txt ?
$ uname -a
FreeBSD pfsense.inetwork 8.3-RELEASE-p14 FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p14 #1: Sun Mar 23 13:26:41 EDT 2014 root@snapshots-8_3-amd64.builders.pfsense.org:/usr/obj.pfSense/usr/pfSensesrc/src/sys/pfSense_SMP.8 amd64
Downloading the pfsense_kernel.txt from /boot/kernel/ is only giving me txt file containing "SMP" and nothing else?
That's what it should be then. SMP is the kernel type and in uname -a it shows you as having the SMP kernel.
Anything special about your HDD setup? Maybe it's booting from one HDD but the firmware updated a different one?
I can't see why there should be any issues at all, but I was going to migrate from using a dedicated computer into using Hyper-V on my Windows Server 2012 R2 installation anyways so I will just do a config backup and configure a new installation using Hyper-V and see how that goes.
