[Bug 221955] /etc/rc.conf should be copied first time from the /msdos file system

            Bug ID: 221955
           Summary: /etc/rc.conf should be copied first time from the
                    /msdos file system
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.1-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: arm
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]

The arm servers like the Raspberry PI 3 get their operating system by copying
an image to a memory card. That image contains a MSDOS compatible partition
which contains files that can be edited on e.g. windows.

Being able to edit the future rc.conf file would allow us to edit the name of
the server, make sure that growfs is enabled, enable ntpd, etc.

By renaming the file fter use, we have a track record of the inital config and
if neccessary it can be done again.

Ideally there should also be a possibility to define a non-root account that is
to be created the first time. Several FreeBSD derivatives uses different
accounts. It would be nice to be able to log on regardless of what account they
have decided on.

The definition of the account should be overwritten once it has been created to
ensure that the password cannot be recovered after the account has been
created.

--- Comment #1 from Emmanuel Vadot <[hidden email]> ---
The rc.conf file always existed only in UFS and it will stay that way.
The images generated by the release engineering team ensure that the system
will boot and that the user can login either by ssh on using the serial console
to modify it according his needs.
Thoses images have a 'freebsd' account with the password 'freebsd'.
