Hi Craig, 

Regarding the vm_open issue, 

vm_open: Invalid argument 

You asked: 

What is the full command that you are using to invoke 

I used simply " <vmname>" as root 

Here is a portion of the scrolled output from above command: 

+ BOOTDISK=./diskdev 
+ installer_opt='' 
+ /usr/sbin/bhyveload -c stdio -m 512M -d ./diskdev freebsd-test 
vm_open: Invalid argument 
+ bhyve_exit=1 
+ [ 1 -ne 0 ] 
+ break 
+ /usr/sbin/bhyvectl --vm=freebsd-test --destroy 
+ exit 1 

As regards the multiple VM's, I have tried this again successfully so your comment about invocations using different names solved the problem - my error. 

One more question, regarding the other failures for which there are now fixes - How do I match a fix to an RC version? 

Thanks for your time,
