Thnx! LOL.Well I feel reasonably safe with the new version (little experience with U1), but I don't run any additional services (jails&co) on mine.
But I definitely cannot recommend a low power build for you, this will not meet the Ultra-High-Performance expectations that you surly have
So had to revert to 11.x on my test/new build box due to the LSI 3008 & SSD issue. Other box with SSDs is rebooting every now and then and the ones with disks are thankfully unaffected
I've had my issues with FreeNAS, there's definitely a lack of polish on the UI (the confusing errors if you have 520 byte formatted drives, ugh!) but I have never ever lost data with it. I reckon that's the important metric. I hope you try it out at least for the sake of learning something.i am sorry for my comment (from a freenas-noob), but when i read your issue's, i cannn't imagine that such a famous product as freenas, is immature...it migth be wrong impression, but that is the feeling i have when i read these replies....i think i will not use use freenas as a NAS solution
Thanks for the info. I will give it a go then and report back.At this point the issue does seem to have some variety to it.
I experienced pretty bad symptoms (as I said up till disks not being seen [single hba port of six]) on an updated 11.2. installation - but I have not seen issues with a fresh 11.3 U1 installation up until now (same box).
At this point I'd say give it a try - I cannot imagine that iX did not test this very common combination, so there must be some secondary aspect in place...
