Description bc979 2016-11-05 23:30:29 UTC
I have several systems that were running 11.0-p1 (RELEASE) and needed to update them to the latest security patches.  Freebsd-update brought down the updates and when they were installed it said nothing about rebooting so I didn't. 

freebsd-version -ku
11.0-RELEASE-p2
11.0-RELEASE-p3

uname -a
FreeBSD sermons 11.0-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p1 #0 r306420: Thu Sep 29 01:43:23 UTC 2016     root@releng2.nyi.freebsd.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

Once I rebooted the system, uname showed -p2:

FreeBSD master 11.0-RELEASE-p2 FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p2 #0: Mon Oct 24 06:55:27 UTC 2016     root@amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

Apparently a reboot was required after the freebsd-update install and it should have told me that was the case.
