NAS4Free 11.0.0.4.3958 released (FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-P8)

#1

Post by zoon01 »

The NAS4Free Team is pleased to announce a maintenance release of version 11.0.0.4.3958 - Sayyadina

download build 11.0.0.4.3958
Read the readme_11.0

Because of PHP upgrade and its related code changes: extensions like Extended GUI are not compatible!
Extensions should be disabled before and after upgrades until their creators have updated it's sources.
As we do not create/test those plugins against compatibility, we do not know if more OBI installer plugins are broken!
We are sorry.


Major Change!
Note for 32-bits users:
===================
We believe that the use of 32-bits versions can not give the end users it's full potential of the OS, for this
further development on the (i386) 32-bits architecture has been stopped upon the 11.0.0.3.xxxx series.
Current 32-bits users are able to use 32-bits 10.3.0.3.xxxx series until their end of life or do reinstall
to use 64-bits NAS4Free and restore config.

Again TIP: Do not upgrade from 10 series directly!
reinstall and restore config is the way to go because of increased partition size!
You avoid lots of problems later on.

Upgrade note:
=============
RRDGraphs extension can no longer be used with 11.x series, disable and deinstall before upgrade!
RRDGraphs are now included in 11.x series, you can setup on webgui System > Advanced > Monitoring Setup.
Do not reinstall the extension!!!

BUILD 11.0.0.4.3958

Changes after release 11.0.0.4.3948
===================================
- Upgrade to FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-P8.
- Update translations.
- Upgrade nano to 2.7.5.

Bug Fixes
========
- Fix bug zfs on root installer.

Known bugs:
===========
- IE11 and Edge browser does not operate correctly with novnc. Enter & Escape button problematic,
this will be fixed at a later release, use Chrome or other browser or connect with putty client.

Enjoy!

Regards,
The NAS4Free Team

Hi guys,

I am using Nas4free (private) for a couple of years now. Thanks for your great work!
Just updated to 11.0.0.4.3958 without problems

Since Version 11.0.0.4.3330 I experienced kernel panics / reboots when changing configuration and pressing "apply changes" of SMB/CIF or NFS.
(hint: I am using a lagg with load balancing between two 1Gbit Cards)

I assume it is this bug already described here: https://sourceforge.net/p/nas4free/bugs/286/

I had same issue five versions ago but in my case it was related to the the boot SSD. Any pushing of Save or Apply changes in any menu option reverted in a system reboot. I have two 1Gb LAN cards in LAGG configuration.

do you install full or embeded?.

if embeded try to do a new fresh install in a new USB, and restore your config to discard problem with your actual USB.

PD: you can try push the button cleaan config & import disk, and to sync webgui and detected in ZFS webGUi.

As I already explained... Embedded
if embeded try to do a new fresh install in a new USB, and restore your config to discard problem with your actual USB.
There is nothing wrong with the USB key. As I told you before when I had a similar problem with an embedded upgrade I formatted and scanned the entire key with two passes using Rufus with no errors found. So I then had to do a full embedded install at that point.
PD: you can try push the button cleaan config & import disk, and to sync webgui and detected in ZFS webGUi.
I did that first after the update. I just did that again and rebooted. The problem still exists.

OK, let's ask this question in a slightly different manner...

On the ZFS, Pools, Information page there are items listed with 0 (zeros) as the numerical response. Should they be zeros or some other numerical value? What do the zeros represent (ie: errors, faults, speed)? If they represent something else then why are they static at zero when the other page (ZFS, Pools, I/O Statistics) have values of non zeros?

Not trying to start a flame war, just trying to better understand what information is being reported.

BTW, I get the same zero values on the ZFS, Pools, Information page and I don't use partitions.

Crazy problem. I do upgrades by using 3 memory sticks (2 Samsung 32gig and an HP 16gig) and rotating them, keeping the previous 2 installs handy in case I have to quick back out. No upgrading, install the new versions as new installs and importing the config. However, this time I needed to change the IP address of OPT1 and OPT2 afterwards. Those two ports are MPIO ISCSI to my home ESXI 6, 3 luns. This worked well in 11.0.0.4.3330. Well, after I changed the IP addresses, they would not pass packets, checked in Bitvise, connected to ESXI. I set the old IP addresses, still no go. I then reapplied my config and I could ping OPT1 and OPT2, and the ISCSI once again connected. At the console, I then decided to start fresh by assigning the interfaces, and when I did I had quite a surprise. I had chosen all four of my NIC ports (HP NC364T, Intel 82571EB processors) with EMO as the LAN interface, in order through EM3. What happened is I got 3 errors "Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /etc/rc.initial.setports on line 158." It then listed the LAN port just fine, but OPT1 was EM3, OPT2 was EM2 and there was no OPT3. Needless to say they would not pass packets (yes they were 'active' in the GUI). I then manually set them properly in the GUI but the only one that would pass packets was the LAN interface. Reapplying the config got them working again. I went back to 11.0.0.4.3330 and was able to assign the interfaces just fine and change IPs. Going once again to a new install, this time with no config import, attempting to just set the interfaces triggered the 3 errors again and this time EM3 was listed as both OPT1 and OPT3. So now I am staying at 11.0.0.4.3330 but am wondering if anyone has seen this error and odd behavior. I'm thinking the install USB isn't being created correctly, and have tried making several on different sticks including a new Samsung to rule out bad sticks but the problem continues. This is the setup in my SIG. BTW I had also backed out to 11.0.0.4.3460 which worked fine until I tried to change IPs or assign interfaces.

From post of JoseMR:

Code: Select all

Pool Configuration Information

The config field in the zpool status output describes the configuration of the devices in the pool, as well as their state and any errors generated from the devices. The state can be one of the following: ONLINE, FAULTED, DEGRADED, UNAVAIL, or OFFLINE. If the state is anything but ONLINE, the fault tolerance of the pool has been compromised.

The second section of the configuration output displays error statistics. These errors are divided into three categories:

    READ – I/O errors that occurred while issuing a read request

    WRITE – I/O errors that occurred while issuing a write request

    CKSUM – Checksum errors, meaning that the device returned corrupted data as the result of a read request

These errors can be used to determine if the damage is permanent. A small number of I/O errors might indicate a temporary outage, while a large number might indicate a permanent problem with the device. These errors do not necessarily correspond to data corruption as interpreted by applications. If the device is in a redundant configuration, the devices might show uncorrectable errors, while no errors appear at the mirror or RAID-Z device level. In such cases, ZFS successfully retrieved the good data and attempted to heal the damaged data from existing replicas.

For more information about interpreting these errors, see Determining the Type of Device Failure.

Finally, additional auxiliary information is displayed in the last column of the zpool status output. This information expands on the state field, aiding in the diagnosis of failures. If a device is FAULTED, this field indicates whether the device is inaccessible or whether the data on the device is corrupted. If the device is undergoing resilvering, this field displays the current progress.

For information about monitoring resilvering progress, see Viewing Resilvering Status.
Scrubbing Status

So YES, MUST be ZERO, otherwise are sign of fail.

your pool show disk as ada0p1, ada1p1, etc... this mean that you use partitioned disk instead of entire disk.


Perhaps do you create your pool in FreeNAS and import here?.


Is not really relevant, only for your information.

No, these disks have only ever been used by NAS4Free and have never been partitioned by me.

So somewhere during the upgrades to NAS4Free from 9 to 10 to 11 these disks have now become partitioned. How can that happen?

I did change back to the native HP AMD AHCI SATA controller from an LSI 9211-8i HBA; could that have triggered this?

is impossible that change in the upgrade.


Please execute command history ( by shell or webGUI) and revise exact command send to create your pool and the time of it.

So here it is. The pool was created with vdevs identified as partitions

2016-09-22.09:21:01 zpool create -m /mnt/Pool Pool raidz1 /dev/ada0p1 /dev/ada1p1 /dev/ada2p1 /dev/ada3p1
2016-09-22.09:22:57 zfs create -o aclinherit=restricted -o aclmode=discard -o atime=off -o casesensitivity=sensitive -o compression=off -o dedup=off -o sync=standard Pool/Share
2016-09-22.09:27:18 zpool import -d /dev -f -a
2016-09-22.09:33:13 zpool import -d /dev -f -a
2016-09-22.10:25:17 zpool import -d /dev -f -a
2016-09-22.10:50:45 zpool import -d /dev -f -a
2016-09-22.11:02:08 zpool import -d /dev -f -a
2016-09-22.13:21:44 zpool import -d /dev -f -a
2016-09-22.15:33:34 zpool import -d /dev -f -a
2016-09-22.15:40:57 zpool import -d /dev -f -a
2016-09-22.15:49:27 zpool import -d /dev -f -a
2016-09-22.16:13:06 zpool import -d /dev -f -a

Again, I have never intentionally partitioned any of the drives in this box (or the drives in any of my other boxes running NAS4Free on ZFS). In fact, I did not even know that xxxpx indicated a partition. I do not recall ever seeing this nomenclature in any documentation.

I have always done complete zero-fill wipes to every drive to remove all metadata before installing them in my servers. So I would have had to format them in NAS4Free. Do you think that when these drives became partitioned?

Since this server is not a production box I think I will remove each drive from the pool one-by-one, scan and wipe each one, format, and then bring each back into the pool. Or would you do it differently?

Hello:

Thank you all for the clarification as to what information is being presented on the ZFS, Pools, Information page.

I must retract a comment I made. I was under the impression I did not partition my 5 x 3.0 TB Seagate drive but based on the information presented by raulfg3 my drives show similar to ada0p1, ada1p1... ada4p1. So I obviously partitioned my disk without realizing it, and I find that most disturbing.

So... What is the proper way to format the drives without partitioning them for a ZFS Raid1 configuration? Please list all steps. I'm not a newbie but obviously what I that I was doing to not create a partition is not right so I guess I need me some schooling. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Hello there, using raw(whole) drives was the recommendation in the ZFS old days, and have just one advantage to me, simplicity and nothing more, while having several disadvantages/limitations on nowadays disk drives.

Formatting the drives with GPT will bring nice benefits, from partition alignment, custom ZFS partitions, custom partition identification labels etc., and NAS4Free creates them if the option "Create ZFS on a GPT partition" was explicitly checked.

So users with Native 4K AF(4Kn) drives should use and take the advantages from the ZFS on GPT.

Note: Users with Native 4K AF drives need to create a new entry under "System > Advanced > sysctl.conf" with the following values for optimal performance:

Code: Select all

Name: vfs.zfs.min_auto_ashift
Value: 12
Comment: ZFS ashift = 12
