I have a remote freebsd host with root access via ssh user login and su. I would
like to configure acls for the /home mount, but am unsure if I can do this remotely.
Last time I tried to reboot the machine via su root it went dead for 24h while a
human was sent to press a button or something.
I see possible options as
1) switch to single user mode somehow and then unmount /home and configure acls
2) su to root
kill processes using /home
do the umount and so on with /home unmounted.
3) some other method.
I imagine it might be quite hard to do 1 and 2 seems difficult unless I have an
ssh to a home folder which isn't under /home.
Any ideas welcome.
