    Ruckus Wireless as an Unifi alternative?

    Hey there, I (or rather my wife) are fed up with Unifi's connection losses (U6-LR; UAP-AC-PRO). I had my own DHCP and roaming issues with them. So I am seriously considering to move away from Unifi. We mainly use WiFi5 devices and don't need the latest bit of speed as much as connection...

    Amazon S3 compatible ZFS cloud with minIO

    Thanks @ma7c! However, just to note that for Veeam you can use a separate SMB share with separate credentials, so the cryptolocker would need to either sniff the password or pick it up from the Veeam executable/files.

    Amazon S3 compatible ZFS cloud with minIO

    Pardon me, but what's the use case at home/single system, e.g. for Veeam vs. using a simple SMB share? My Veeam agents all save to a SMB share hosted on my OmniOS NAS ...? I can see the benefit if minIO is used to provide distributed storage (a la ceph), but that's a different kettle of fish.

    Napp-It can't locate Net/ despite having it installed

    Have you tried running the CPAN install as sudo / root? Please try a sudo re-install. I recall a similar problem that went away when I re-installed via sudo ...

    Trouble Initializing Disks OmniOS / Napp-it

    Disk tests don't turn up any errors. Wondering why a bad disk would torpedo the SSH and SMB services but not NFS?

    Trouble Initializing Disks OmniOS / Napp-it

    There may be more to this ... I used to run an ext4 mdadm RAID1 with, inter alia, one 4TB Ironwolf and one 4TB Seagate NAS drive under Arch. Worked perfectly for a few years. Then I put that on hold. Later on, tried to re-purpose both 4TB disks in my ESXi/OmniOS/napp-IT setup (Dell T30 with a...

    ZFS - sync=disable - fragmentation without SLOG

    I would expect: No sync = no ZIL writes to the storage pool. Hence no (added) fragmentation. An SLOG should not make a difference to you in this scenario. Sync = ZIL writes to either the storage pool (= additional fragmentation and very much slower than no sync) or to the SLOG (= no...

    OmniOS 151028 stable

    @RyC, you need to uninstall (remove) NTP. Only then will open-vm-tools start. If both are installed, both will be "offline". Rebuilding seems to be the cleaner way forward, of course.

    OmniOS 151028 stable

    For completeness' sake: Have you checked the "svcs" / svcadmin output (not sure about syntax)? I had an NTP service running which prevented open-vm-tools from starting. They are exclusive since several months. Stopped NTP and open-vm-tools worked again as intended.

    Nappit AIO - Typical CPU Usage

    Parity calculations shouldn't hit the CPU that much, but perhaps try with a RAID10? Deduplication disabled? Also, what gea/Rand_ said - reduce vCPUs to 4.

    Backup to a network location?

    Perhaps investigate this a bit more before searching for alternatives - what OS? Gea will know better but on OmniOS this might be related to deprecated SMB1 or a disabled netbios setting ...

    OmniOS CE: two simple issues...

    Scroll back works for me if I log in via SSH (Windows -> Putty / Kitty), as in the Linux fashion of shift+PageUp. Not sure about the native console. I don't think you need to use "enable-addr" at all. -- That being said, I had issues with using several NICs in OmniOS (see an earlier post) - are...

    OmniOS 151028 stable

    Sorry for the late reply gea, I think I might have managed to solve this issue with installing without passwords and setting a user and root password (and napp-it?) from the console (not over SSH). In the end I went back to OmniOS stable (...26) however as I could not set up a ZFS pool from my...

    OmniOS 151028 stable

    For OmniOS 151027 (bloody): I can't get around the "sudo: PAM account management error: Permission denied " error. I note that you, gea, have stated on your napp-it homepage that Problems with OmniOS 151027 bloody If you get PAM authentication error when starting napp-it, you must reset the...

    OmniOS 151026 stable

    I had the same issue. Running an update of napp-it solved it for me -- went from 18.01free (2 Feb) to 18.01free (2 April). Note there is no change to the main version number!

    [SOLVED] OmniOS r151021 (latest Bloody) and napp-it: Perl error on

    Just to note that, following upgrade to the new OmniOS release (r151026), napp-it (18.01free) again throws errors in the web interface (not at my home desk right now - something like "wrong handshake, expected HEX1 got HEX2")

    OmniOS / ESXi / multiple NICs

    Thank you both - I have now a working system! 1. Using only static IPs in OmniOS. 2. Using only VNICs in OmniOs. One for the internal storage network, one attached to a (separate) physical NIC. 3. Works.

    OmniOS / ESXi / multiple NICs

    Ladies and gentlemen, hope you can help me out here as I have not (yet) found the pertinent information by google crawling: I am building a new "all-in-one" home server based on ESXi and a storage VM, but having trouble with multiple NICs on OmniOS (and potentially on other VMs). Intended...
