installed 9.0 x64 yesterday and de0 comes up fine when booting. The only thing that does not work is promiscuous mode, but that's a restriction of Hyper-V.

Subject: FreeBSD 9.0 x64 de interface under Hyper-V

Hello All,
I have two freebsd VMs running in Hyper-V
9.0 x86 and 9.0 x64.

On x64 the de0 interface apparenlty does not come up when the system
is booted. If I bring the interface down and back upagain (ifconfig
de0 down, ifconfig de0 up) it works.

On x86 de0 works fine.
