    i managed to upgrade to 9.1.1, everything seems to be ok.
    Only problem i have is with my ethernet card, a belkin gigabit network card:
    Sep 14 22:30:15 freenas kernel: skc0: <Belkin F5D5005 Gigabit Ethernet> port 0x2000-0x20ff mem 0x8a100000-0x8a103fff irq 17 at device 6.0 on pci0
    Sep 14 22:30:15 freenas kernel: skc0: Belkin Gigabit Desktop Card rev. (0x1)
    Sep 14 22:30:15 freenas kernel: sk0: <Marvell Semiconductor, Inc. Yukon> on skc0

    hardware seems to be recognized ok, but i keep getting this as soon as i try to ssh or go to the GUI

    card worked fine in 8.3.0

    My first guess is that your network card driver might not be completely updated to work with FreeBSD 9. My only 2 recommendations are to wait until its fixed(assuming FreeBSD has a ticket on the issue) or get a different card(Intel NICs work great!)
