[Solved] 2.1.2=>2.2 NanoBSD, Something went wrong with fstab entry



  • Have a pfsense 2.1.2 running on watchguard XTM505 Hardware. System is on CFCard, NanoBSD x64.

    When trying to upgrade the installation via webgui, it took have an hour, then the installation procedure gets canceld. System notices: "Something went wrong when trying to update the fstab entry. Aborting upgrade."

    My first thought was, this has something to do with watchguard/CFCard.
    I tried "ufslabels.sh" with the following result:

    cp: /etc/fstab.tmp: Read-only file system
    sed: 1: "s/ufs/pfsense1/ufsid/5 …": bad flag in substitute command: 'u'
    FS: / on device ufs/pfsense1 with ufsid 53467fd64ba5880e
    sed: 1: "s/ufs/cf/ufsid/5230ff5 ...": bad flag in substitute command: 'u'
    FS: /cf on device ufs/cf with ufsid 5230ff5ffab4cd5b

    The current fs tab shows this entries:
    /dev/ufs/pfsense1 / ufs ro,sync,noatime 1 1
    /dev/ufs/cf /cf ufs ro,sync,noatime 1 1

    Any ideas what has to be done?



  • Just for the record: I wasn't able to fix this problem with an "online" pfsense.

    To fix the problem, I had to reinstall the whole system. Don't forget to backup your configuration settings.
