I just upgraded my server(Dell T110 with SAS2008 raid controller, 1 hardware RAID-1 array) to r255103. Last time I upgraded it was at Aug. 25(see Environment), and it works fine.

After I installed the kernel(r255183), it cannot boot and stuck at mountroot prompt. It says that "mounting from ufs:/dev/da0p2 failed with error 19".

I tried typing "?" to list bootable devices, but only CD-ROM is on list, seems /dev/da0 is not recognized by the new kernel.

I then booted kernel.old, and everying is OK. So it is not my hardware problem.

I think the mps driver MFCed has some bug in it. If you need more details, please contact me via email. I normally reply in 24h.

Thank you.
Find a SAS2008 card, connect a harddisk to it, install the lastest version of 9-STABLE and boot.
