mfi driver on FreeBSD vs tws

I am looking for a decent controller to have about 16 disks for ZFS on 
FreeBSD.  A pair of LSI 9240-8i seems like a pretty reasonable price 
point compared to the equiv tws cards.  I have had great success with 
3ware cards to date.  How stable is the mfi driver compared to the tws 
on FreeBSD ?

I would be using it in jbod mode for a large ZFS server

freebsd-update - upgrade from 9.1-RELEASE to 9.3-RELEASE - requries all ports rebuilt?


I just walked a system from 9.1-RELEASE to 9.3-RELEASE using 
'freebsd-update -r 9.3-RELEASE upgrade'

Having fetched, patched, gone to single user - installed, rebooted - and 
installed again - I'm greeted by:

Completing this upgrade requires removing old shared object file.
Please rebuild all installed 3rd part software (e.g., programs
installed from the ports tree) and then run '/usr/sbin/freebsd-update 
install' again to finish installing updates.

I thought that only had to happen if you moved between major versions (e.g. 
9.x to 10.x?)

I can't find any way of making freebsd-update tell me what files it wants 
to remove now either?

If I ignore this (on the understanding I may be running binaries linked 
against 'older' libraries) is that OK?

This machine has a lot of ports on it - going from 9.1 to 9.3 was done 
because I *thought* that wouldn't require a mass recompile :(

RE: building an educational resource list


I am only trying to ask for your help, but if you don't want to give it, I'd appreciate it if you respond to me in a
nice, well-mannered approach. 

Have a nice day!

Still Trying to Run Installer Through Serial Port

	Is there a way to cause an unmodified FreeBSD9.1
installation disk to run a serial console?
	Since I am unable to create a modified ISO image
of the installation disk that will fit back on to a CDROM, I am
grasping at straws, now. While this could be called a headless
installation, it actually is being done locally but I can't use
the video display on the target system. The usual procedure if a
computer user is blind is to use a computer that is working as a
terminal in to the target system and, by whatever means is at
hand, direct things from that terminal.
	The FreeBSD handbook mentions a small pause in the boot
process that allows the caller to insert boot parameters such as
to call up a serial console, etc.
	Will that work off of a standard new installation disk?
	If so, it more or less resolves the impasse I am at right
	A long time ago, I think in about FreeBSD4 or so, one
could actually boot the installation medium in to a serial
console without any modifications to the image.
	That capability went away around FreeBSD 6 or so but one
could modify the image and stuff it back on to a new CDROM
without too much trouble.
	If the ability to start a serial console is back in some
form again, I can go ahead and finish this project.
	Thanks for all constructive suggestions.

Re: Ost to Pst Converter

Excellent way to get rid of such problem from OST file. It is very usable
resolution to repair corrupt/ damaged OST file and export outlook OST file
into PST, EML, MSG and HTML formats then save OST as PST.

system identification in utx database?


Is there any information in a utx(8) database (log)
that allows one to identify the system where
that database was recorded? I cannot find any.

I need to preserve the utx access logs from several
FreeBSD boxes. If I copy the logs to another box,
or just print, I lose the information about the
system where these logs came from.
This is because this information does not
seem to be present in the logs themselves.
So I have to add some manual database identification,
which might cast doubt on the database authenticity
or integrity, if I even need to rely such databases,
e.g. in court.

So, I wonder if there is some system identification
information written to utx database that I'm not
familiar with.

I also have auditing enabled, but I'm still
learning it, and don't want to loose the
simplicity of utx.

Shall I ask in securuty <at>  list?

FreeBSD smbfs horrible slow


I am running a FreeBSD 10.1-RC2 box on at network where a Debian
GNU/Linux box is hosting Samba.

Mounting the share from another Debian (using cifs) or from a Windows
box I get transfer rates at about 100 MB/s.

All boxes are on the same gigabit network.

Mounting the share from the FreeBSD box, using mount_smbfs or even
smbclient, I can max. get 10-15 MB/s.

I have tested the FreeBSD client on the exact same hardware as the
Debian client.

I am running with the following network card:

  em0: <Intel(R) PRO/1000 Legacy Network Connection 1.0.6> port
  0xdf00-0xdf1f mem 0xfdee0000-0xfdefffff,0xfdec0000-0xfdedffff irq 21
  at device 0.0 on pci2

The mount command for smbfs is:

  mount_smbfs -E
  iso-8859-1:iso-8859-1 //foo <at> fileserver/pub3 /home/foo/mnt/fileserver/pub3

Now, testing the same on NFS I get the same transfer rate from Debian
to FreeBSD, ie. about 100 MB/s, so clearly the problem lies with

Is true that Microsoft doesn't use products Microsoft in web servers in half the time ?

Probably I'll invest in a distant future maybe in web servers, but I
do not know what to use for this.

In FreeBSD Forums, the user 'deathbyfreezeray' said that "Honestly
when it comes to web servers, even Microsoft doesn't use Microsoft
products half the time. "  reference:

Is true that Microsoft doesn't use products Microsoft in web servers
in half the time ?

If is true, what are the products in web servers that the Microsoft
use in half the time?
