Hello everyone.


Thank guys. I was able to implement the software RAID-1 in our FreeBSD box. The system boots up okey and I was able to login without any problems. But during the boot process I noticed these lines


Jun 28 15:52:32 afrim fsck: fstab: /etc/fstab:3: Inappropriate file type or format
Jun 28 15:52:32 afrim fsck: fstab: /etc/fstab:5: Inappropriate file type or format
Jun 28 15:52:32 afrim fsck: fstab: /etc/fstab:7: Inappropriate file type or format
Jun 28 15:52:32 afrim fsck: fstab: /etc/fstab:9: Inappropriate file type or format
Jun 28 15:52:32 afrim fsck: fstab: /etc/fstab:11: Inappropriate file type or format


Other than that the system work fine. Can anyboy shed my some light on my these lines apper on the boot-up process?


Thanks

    It's hard to tell without seeing a copy of your /etc/fstab. Also, what version of FreeBSD?

      I had the same initial problem with the "inappropriate filetype or format". I am installing FreeBSD 6.2

      Examining /etc/fstab revealed that my edits had caused the last 2 fields (Dump, Pass#) to wrap onto a new line! Carefully editing /etc/fstab to put the values back on the same line corrected the problem - verified that the messages did not appear after a reboot.

    Hi guys i finally figured out what was causing the problem. I went back to my fstab configuration and found the problem. Just had to move some lines and aligned some configurations.
