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

    I have a RAIDZ2 comprised of 8x 3TB HGST 512 sector drives that have over 6 years of power on time (approx 53200hrs). While I haven't lost a drive yet, I know my days are numbered. The pool was created using ashift=9 and and I know that in the past OI/OmniOS wouldn't let you replace the drive...

    Building a (low cost) Linux-based ZFS High-Availability Clustered NAS

    From what I understood from Nexenta when we asked about active/active during a SAN build for our office, this is basically what they told us we would have to do.

    Building a (low cost) Linux-based ZFS High-Availability Clustered NAS

    Thanks for posting. The OCF script you link in the article appears to be written for Illumos, did you have to make any modifications to it in order to get it work work with ZOL. I gave it a quick look and it doesn't look like it's really doing anything too crazy.

    Purchasing FreeNAS Hardware (not going DIY route) - Recommendations?

    If you're not planning on going the DIY route I would probably look at purchasing the hardware directly from FreeNAS.

    ZFS Question

    Only way to redistribute the data evenly across all vdev's would be to take all the data off the pool that you want balanced and then then put it all back on. It's not pretty but it's currently the only way.

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

    When we built our Nexenta SAN here at the office last year we were told not to exceed 128GB of RAM as there was a potential issue. So if it was fixed in illumos it must be a relatively new fix or whoever the agent was that I spoke to when we built it made a mistake.

    IT Resume Thread

    Been working at the same place for a really long time now and starting a feel like I'm stagnating. Time for new resume and with any luck a fresh start at a new place. Criticism is welcome.

    Does it have sense to buy a big SSD for games?

    I do and it's wonderful. That being said I only play one game on my computer so my 256GB drive is plenty big.

    Good alternatives to Dropbox?

    Not using a a cloud provider. It's running on my home server. The backups are being replicated over to my parents house. So my cost is almost nothing. Edit: Typo

    Good alternatives to Dropbox?

    +1 for OwnCloud. My ISP doesn't block Port 443 and I use Dynamic DNS at home with offsite backups configured on my storage box.

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

    Looks like my issues are still present. Rebooted both the OmniOS server and my workstation. I'm back to only being able to get onto the shares using the IP address. I'm playing around with SAMBA4 at the moment so this isn't a standard windows domain controller. I'll get one of those running...

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

    Even when configuring single IP addresses I always configure using the CIDR. I've had weird behavior when not doing it this way. ie.( ro/[email protected]/32 ) for a single IP address.

    Let's talk about replacing an EMC Isilon

    Nexenta user here with an HA setup. Getting it up and running was fairly pain free. When you purchase the HA license it comes with support for the setup. Essentially they login and configure/test everything for/with you. We had some issues early out of the gate caused by a faulty CPU in our...

    FreeNAS vs. Windows 8.1/10 vs. Windows Server 2012 Essentials / Standard Version

    That processor doesn't support VT-d (PCI Passthrough) so I would recommend running FreeNAS natively on the box instead. While it's not a requirement, it's strongly recommended that the OS have direct access to the drive controllers when using ZFS. Plex has a plugin for FreeNAS so you wouldn't be...

    Business Self-Host FTP/Owncloud Setup?

    I'm not familiar with the other products that you've mentioned but I know that with OwnCloud this could be relatively easily accomplished by connecting everything to an LDAP server.

    Cheap SAS Controller with 4 to 6TB support?

    You will have to crossflash it to an LSI controller. There are a bunch of guides on here on how to do it. It's really easy to do. That controller you linked is a RAID controller. If you're planing on using software RAID (snapraid) I would avoid those types of controllers.

    New Supermicro 24-bay Chassis - Help setting up

    The redundant one's had some ridiculously loud fans in them and it was unbearable in my apartment. While it's admittedly an ugly hack, it was a cheap/easy way for me to fix that issue.

    I have a similar chassis (non-expander version) and removed the fans and replaced them all with Noctua Fans. I also removed the PSU and installed a standard ATX power supply in there. Fitment isn't great for the power supply but it's been working like this for almost over a year now without...
