Description Armin Pirkovitsch freebsd_committer 2020-01-12 18:26:03 UTC
After updating to 12.1 (with and without p1) (as well as clean 12.1 install) my FreeBSD guests fail to boot.

CPU: Xeon E5-2620 v4 (2x) (I mention this as it works fine on my i7 server)

It always stops exactly with / after this line:
/boot/entropy size=0x1000

The same guests work fine on a clean 12.0-p12 install.

Any hints how I could debug that problem? (btw. due to bug 241079 I can't test stable)

Can you share the bhyve invocation you're using?  Does the other server also run 12.1?

I use vm-bhyve and a pretty basic config

yes - both machines have been updated on the same day to 12.1

Just tested stable/12 and the bug is gone there - so from my understanding it should be solved with 12.2-RELEASE.
