    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 I have tried -o ashift 9 but it has rejected the command, I assume the results I am getting on Google are out of date.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...

    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...

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

    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)...

    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

    OpenIndiana + Nappit - No Free Space

    Thanks for the explanation Gea, OI has been rock solid for absolutely ages until this and has saved my data on more than 1 occasion. What would be the way out of this trap then? Can I increase the size of the VHD dynamically or will OI throw a fit? I understand the snapshots can be imported at...

    OpenIndiana + Nappit - No Free Space

    I believe the snapshots are occuring automatically, through napp-it. Should I disable this or change the lifetime of snapshots? Can you expand the VHD?

    OpenIndiana + Nappit - No Free Space

    Hi all The other day my napp-it/OI box went down and couldn't come back up. It was because snapshots had filled the disk so it was in an unusable state. I fixed it by adding -s to grub (not sure if this even did anything), zfs list -t snapshot, and then deleting old snapshots using zfs...

    ESXi Whitebox Backup

    I gave up on saving VM's, I can't afford the storage right now. In stead I passed through the USB 3.0 controller to server 2012, and setup cobian to just backup the files every day at 5am. Nothing changes regularly so I'm happy with this solution :) Also gives me the ability to just unplug it...

    Correct, it's a small home environment (2012E backs up clients, runs Plex/SickBeard/SABNZB, OpenIndiana is file server and PfSense is router).

    Backup ADSL on Cisco Router?

    For anyone interested, this is how I've configured it. It only works when the BT interface goes down, i.e. router failure or billing query however. I may implement IP SLA to track the default gateway route. Building configuration... Current configuration : 1670 bytes ! version 12.3...

    One IP - two separate LANs for security?

    Sorry, misread the question...think I was reading a different thread altogether lol - sorry. Yeah that would work fine, you don't need 3 routers though, just 2, and set the second as it's own ip range with the D/G of the main router
