Re: fsck attempted on NFS root?

From my understanding of the rc scripts, the check solely relies on proper values in /etc/fstab. For an NFS root I suppose the "fs_passno" field should be left out or null (0). Can you verify this is the case?

Yes, this is exactly so:

-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  70 Jan  7  2008 /path/to/root/etc/fstab

Contents of fstab:

server:/path/to/root    /       nfs     rw       0 0
/swap                   none    swap    sw       0 0

As you can see, I've been using this setup for over a year and this
is the first time something like this has happened.

It could also be the fsck_flags, but I think it's unlikely.

The "etc/defaults/rc.conf" file has "fsck_flags=-p" and I haven't
changed them anywhere.
