Evening all, thought I'd decompress here and show some work I have been doing this evening to migrate my Vm pool of data (600GB roughly) from FreeNAS 9.10 to FreeNAS Corral 'the old fashioned way'. I am not quite ready to upgrade my FreeNAS 9.10 to Corral but have a Corral AIO that I wanted to protect my VM pool data over to. Thought I'd setup a FreeNAS peer but that only seems to work Corral to Corral...even tried a ssh host peer, no such luck. Didn't want to investigate since it's a 'one time backup/protection scheme' so this was what I resorted to. To maintain peak performance ensure your pool of storage is up to the task (sas3 HGST ssd's used in this case), your network is 10G, and FreeNAS hosts are connected 10G (vmxnet3 in my case between my AIO's), jumbo end-to-end. Could have used this 'one liner' type of syntax but I know ssh has an overhead for sure, never gonna reach maximum throughput via that method unless you take hpn-ssh route maybe. zfs send email@example.com | ssh 192.168.x.x zfs recv sas3/nfs-dr Ended up settling in on good ole' netcat (DO NOT use this on an unsecure network, ONLY use on trusted network) SRC - (run first) [root@freenas-esxi6a] ~# zfs send firstname.lastname@example.org | nc -l 3333 DEST - (run second) [root@freenas] ~# nc 192.168.x.x 3333 | zfs recv sas3/nfs-dr The results: SRC FreeNAS 9.10 system DEST FreeNAS Corral system Hope this helps someone out there that may want to move data from FreeNAS 9.x to Corral. Tried and true method between any ZFS distro really.
