    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Thanks Gea. I have a mirror backup of the data so I will destroy the vdev and re-create it with my 4k+512b disks with ashift=12. I'll take your advice from a previous thread and retire my Open Indiana installation as well I think! Thanks, dL

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Guys, I replaced a drive at the weekend and it has 4k sectors. My other 4 disks are 512byte. Is there a way to force the new drive to be 512? I have tried -o ashift 9 but it has rejected the command, I assume the results I am getting on Google are out of date. Thanks, dL

    Home Server - Backup Strategy (ZFS, VMDKs, File Level)

    Hi guys, For context - I set this ESXi whitebox up some time ago and it was always a test bed; until it wasn't. It now stores a whole bunch of non-critical content (backups, audio, ISO images). Recently my brother somehow installed CryptoWall which nuked about 800Gb of files and we were only...

    Understood - as expected. Thanks Gee. I really do owe you a beer, I think you must have helped me a helpful of times over the years.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Can you tell from the screenshot I posted (the imgur link) if snaps were turned on for tank? Or were they just turned on for rpool? I remember doing some work on the server about 18 months ago. Apologies for the rookie questions, the server is so stable I leave and forget it for the most...

    Thanks for the quick response Gee. I'm not sure I'm in luck as it appears snaps were only turned on for the rpool: http://imgur.com/5W9OexO The files that were affected exist in tank/dave and tank/software/daves I'm currently reading through the manpages for snapshot restore to confirm.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Team, I'm still catching up from about post 120 but I have hit a huge issue. My brother has somehow managed to obtain CryptoWare ransomware virus, and it has 2048bit encrypted about 800GB of files on the server. Luckily (ironically) the computer that caught the virus has an issue whereby it...

    Static WAN IP Questions

    It could be a combination of things. If they give you a /27 for e.g. they have lost 2 IP's for every other as you have a private D/G then. The place I worked at previously had PVLAN's setup, so your /24 would come in on VLAN1, but traffic matching your IP range would be in a sub-VLAN (a PVLAN)...

    Creating A New Server?

    This guy doesn't know what TightVNC is, let alone configuring and installing FreeNAS. Dude, just right click a folder on your 'chosen' PC and configure sharing, then access it on the other PC's. Guide: How to share: http://compnetworking.about.com/od/windowsxpnetworking/ht/sharewinxpfiles.htm

    Pay someone to do it, you really have no business setting this up for a business.

    Critique ESXi Build

    Vendor is http://www.waeplus.co.uk/ - UK obviously, sorry for not adding the units to the OP lol. They are local to me, otherwise I probably wouldn't trust just how good value they are. Friends room mate came through today as well and gifted me a intel rs2bl080 RAID card - so I will pass this...

    OpenIndiana + Nappit - No Free Space

    Just uploading video of how I did this here: http://youtu.be/WKiBMizgOFI And this is how to convert from thick to thin provisioning (and side effect, backup your VM) http://youtu.be/bYE-gyKiel4

    May have to do this sooner rather than later, as it's just happened again (lol).
