Now openSolaris has gone the way of the Norwegian Blue, and I saw that Nas4Free had picked up where freenas 7 left off, with a new version of BSD with an even more up-to-date ZFS, YAY!
So, I am a little rusty at this, as I haven't had to do anything with either NAS for two years, so:
I've done a full install of nas4free on a new drive (220.127.116.11 - Sandstorm (revision 139)) then:
- added my drives under Disks->Management
- in the command line, ran zpool import -f main
- synchronized in Disks->ZFS->Configuration->Synchronize, leaving snapshots and importing disks used into configuration
- started a scrub in Disks->ZFS->Pools->Tools
So far all seems well:
Code: Select all
pool: main state: ONLINE status: The pool is formatted using an older on-disk format. The pool can still be used, but some features are unavailable. action: Upgrade the pool using 'zpool upgrade'. Once this is done, the pool will no longer be accessible on older software versions. scan: scrub in progress since Sun Jun 24 10:06:57 2012 1.26T scanned out of 5.53T at 39.9M/s, 31h15m to go 0 repaired, 22.70% done config: NAME STATE READ WRITE CKSUM main ONLINE 0 0 0 raidz1-0 ONLINE 0 0 0 ada2p1 ONLINE 0 0 0 ada1p1 ONLINE 0 0 0 ada5p1 ONLINE 0 0 0 ada3p1 ONLINE 0 0 0 ada4p1 ONLINE 0 0 0
You must apply the changes in order for them to take effect."
I tried applying the changes, and got this error: "Error: The changes could not be applied (error code 1)."
Can I not apply the configuration until after I upgrade the zpool? Not sure I want to do that just yet, as my only other option at that point would be a full freeBSD install to manage the data if Nas4Free doesn't work out.
So, my questions:
- have I done all the right steps to import my pool save upgrading it?
- why the error in the management tab?
- do I need to add any volumes (rusty here, cannot remember) as there are none showing.
I haven't tried setting AFP/NFS exports yet on the new machine, but when I ssh in, I do see my data. WOO!
