           Summary: FreeBSD 13.0 release version booting into single user
                    mode by default when the OS disk behind smartpqi
                    controller.
           Product: Base System

Hi,

The tyan server has 7 drives which is behind the smartpqi controller. 
We've installed the FreeBSD 13.0 on one of the drive which is behind the
smartpqi controller (drive number is da5).
After successful OS installation, we created RAID5 with 3 disk( Used da0, da1,
da2 for RAID5) and we did the power cycle after that the system went to single
user mode.

Usually in the FreeBSD 12.2, it will ask the user to mount the OS disk manually
in case if the drive order changes but in FreeBSD 13.0 directly it's going to
single user and it's not allowing to mount the disk.

In both cases the SmartPQI driver and Firmware is same but seeing weird
behavior from the OS.

Here what is the difference between 12.2 and 13.0 when it fails to mount the OS
drive during boot?
