    Video Editing NAS for 5 editors - FreeNas/TrueNas/Unraid

    Hey guys! :D First of all, thank you very much for all the good information and help here. I built my first Unraid server 4 years ago. At that time it should be used as a video editing NAS, Plex Server and for other applications. That has now changed. Shortly afterwards I founded a small video...

    Discussion on parts and freenas VDev configuration for 10g Editing NAS

    Hello everyone: I'm looking at building my first freenas Storage server to store finished projects and edit directly out of. I've decided to go about DIYing it after being unimpressed by the performance/price of Synology and QNAP solutions. My goal for this build was to come up with a more...

    I'm building my first Proxmox/TrueNAS Core box as a low utilization, single-user home server and hoping to get some advice on my setup. The plan is to have TrueNAS Core hosted in a VM and have an HBA passed through to that VM for the 6x4TB drives to be setup as a RAID-Z2 vdev. I will have a...

    TrueNAS native vs TrueNAS under Proxmox

    In general, if a filer OS (such as TrueNAS/FreeNAS) natively supports virtualization, why would one run that as a virtualized guest under a hypervisor OS (such as Proxmox), rather than natively? For example, The Proxmox VE KVM-based All-in-One with FreeNAS: why couldn't that be simplified to...

    I have an LSI 9211-8i. I just added another (8)-bay SAS internal cage to my HP DL380 G7. The upgraded internal bay requires (2) more SAS ports. The 9211-8i only has 2 ports. I went through some trouble when I set it up originally 1 or 2 other SAS cards did not play nice with Freenas, and...

    HGST SAS3 Drives with 20k Hours

    Howdy, I got these four drives off of ebay, sold as "new", at a good price, $139, for this seller: deals2day-364. Now, I didn't expect them to be new, but I didn't expect the drives to have 20k power-on hours either. The fact that they are sold as "new" when they have even more hours than the...

    FreeNAS virtualized under ESXi

    Hi, I am considering downscaling my homelab to just one server. But that would require me to virtualize my FreeNAS under ESXi and then use the FreeNAS pools via ISCSi or NFS. Every single time I have tried it in the past - server reboots has been a pain in the butt, since ESXi is so slow/not...

    Is the APC Smart-UPS 1000VA a good buy for a silent UPS?

    Hi, I just found a 2nd hand APC Smart-UPS 1000VA (SUA1000UXI) with brand new batteries, which I'm considering to use for my FreeNAS server. In the NUT compatibility list (Network UPS Tools - Hardware compatibility list) this UPS is labeled as the worst possible: But what does this mean? *...

    Keyboard input stopped working in console

    Hi guys. I'm just beginning down my path to building a home server, and I think I've settled on FreeNAS as I mostly just want file sharing/backup/redundancy. I've been playing around with an install and a batch of hard drives, and so I've been going back and forth with the GUI based shell, and...

    IBM x3650 M3 internal HBA for FreeNAS - ASR-71605 and rewiring?

The way it's connected internally is the 2 SFF8087 connectors on the x8 RAID card in one of the...

    FreeNAS Cloud sync with delayed delete?

    In FreeNAS (11.x U5, if that matters), I have a cloud sync task to upload a folder to GCP cold storage (my photography backup). I set the cloud sync task to "sync", so if I delete something locally, it gets deleted in the cloud. The problem is that GCP storage has a 90 day minimum storage...
