If one wants to have the boot code send the initial stuff to both the serial and VGA, one should use

echo '-Dh -S115200' > /boot.config

but the option -Dh does not seem to be mentioned in boot.config(5) ?
Comment 1 Maxim Konovalov freebsd_committer 2018-03-12 13:37:05 UTC

From boot.config(5)

: A valid format of this file is to put BIOS drive number, a controller
: type, a unit number, a partition, a kernel file name, and any other valid
: boot(8) option <...>

Have you checked boot(8) man page?

Ok to close the ticket?
