I converted it because
1. installer nagging phrasing (not recommended, etc)
2. all the documentation I found insisted the only difference between them is that full cannot be upgraded via the web ui. and implications that full is basically an outdated throwback without any benefits.
thanks to you though I finally know what the pros of full are.
It seems also that performing the "upgrade" from full to embedded had created some sort of weird thing. OBI and some extensions can be installed on an ex-full now-embedded version that can't on a pure embedded version.
While in a clean install of embedded(which required me to break out gparted because nas4free errors out if the disk has existing partitions) it will have OBI disappear after reboot and have trouble installing some extensions. With various different types of errors.
A weird thing I noticed on my full to embedded transform is that using rm -r /mnt/OBI
then installing again, still thinks plex is install. Which suggests there are stuff being saved outside of the OBI directory.
Did a "full on ZFS" clean install. It works. Although weirdly it still had settings on it, which suggests it somehow stored them in one of my other drives? odd.
Hi, the information you have found against Full is mostly outdated and only applied to the legacy version running on UFS, therefore is no longer the case for the feature rich Full RootOnZFS advanced installations. also if you already installed Full RootOnZFS, remember that the Upgrade files you need to download end with the .tgz file format, example below:
Code: Select all
This is the file you need for further Full RootOnZFS WebGUI Firmware upgrades, also don't hesitate to ask how to roll back if something gone wrong for a specific update, reinstall is not required to roll-back, so just wait for a working fix release as usual and retry for upgrade, also last but not least, remember that Full installations loves running from an HDD/SSD drives, if you plan to use a USB, get the best branded USB3.0 NAND Flash drive for reliability or even a pair mirrored, but again a single laptop 2.5" HDD is more that enough for home.
As for OBI, if you want to use the NAS4Free install disk for Extension, a Check Box about don't looking below "/mnt" have to be checked, but remember, the recommended way to install Extension is to be placed into a permanent data location such a RAID array regardless of what platform you are running, if I miss something please just ask for recommends.
As for the odd settings leftovers, may be if you restored the older config.xml file, also remember on Full RootOnZFS you have to re-import disks and synchronize, you may want to uncheck related "zroot" from the Synch page for your convenience/simplicity.
