After creating or editing a bridge (I guess that restarts the bridge), all members are gone. Also deleting and creating a new one isn't working.

Added them manually afterwards at shell with:
ifconfig bridge0 addm em1 addm em2 up

After a reboot the members are gone as well and not added automatically.

You did a binary upgrade or just gitsync to 2.1?

Actions #2

I did the daily update via the webgui, so I guess that's a binary update.

If this is related to what Im seeing here-,46738.0.html

then this started while the versions based on FreeBSD 9.0 where being developed. If not related I guess Im seeing a separate issue...

I can also confirm this behaviour on:

2.1-DEVELOPMENT (amd64)
built on Sun Apr 22 05:15:07 EDT 2012

Adding myself as a watcher because this is fairly important for my setup. I've hopefully worked around the issue by adding the above-mentioned `ifconfig addm ..` command(s) to system bootup via the shellcmd package.

I think it works, with one small typo fixed:

pfSense_bridge_add_member($bridgeif, $realifl);

last later should be number 1, not lower case L

(line 518 in /etc/inc/
pfSense_bridge_add_member($bridgeif, $realif1);

Ah you're right, I didn't copy/paste or save from the test box to the repo like I usually do. Easy to miss in the font I'm using in my editor. Fix pushed
