    pkg update -f -r --be-name=r151026
    just creates a BE with this name and load the newest updates for 151022.

    To update to a newer version, you must first unset the omnios repo for 151022 and set it to 151024 then update to 024
    and then from 024 go to 030 with a change of repository again (maybe a jump from 022 to 030 is possible)

    Oh wow, sorry, that was a noobie one...
    So I made it to r151028, but as predicted in your docs, SSH didn't start afterwards, so I logged into napp-it (which was on 19.01c1, so presumably new enough) and tried to "set defaults after 151028 update". It gave me a number of errors in the process, here's the outcome:
    SSH still does not start, but still hoping that you can help me make this work... Thanks!

    To be honest. I would simply

    - save /var/web-gui/_log/* (napp-it settings)
    - write down users with their uid and optionally smbgroups
    - export pool

    - fresh install of 151030
    - install napp-it per wget
    - import pool
    - re-create users and smb-groups
    - restore nappit settings var/web-gui/_log/*

    or with very newest napp-it Pro
    - run a backup job
    - reinstall
    - restore users and settings in menu User > Restore

    This is done in 30min.

    For anyone interested, upgrading from R151028 to R151030 went without a hitch after removing all previous GCC packages.

    Again, thanks to _Gea for his invaluable help. I have now upgraded my NAS to OmniOS 151031 (bloody), and my Windows Client now connects using SMB 3.0.2, however, the problem persists. I hope the guys at the VLC Forum can help me further on this one.

    Hi,

    I've got an AiO setup with an Optane 900P and I'd like some advice on the best setup as I'm not getting the same performance as detailed in Gea's optane_slog_pool_performance.pdf.

    I've got a Supermicro X9SCL with a E3-1240 V2. My OmniOS VM has 4 vCPUs, 16GB of RAM and an LSI2008 passed through. I'm using 3 WD Red Pro in a mirror. My ZFS setup seems to match the test setup and I have sync=always, readcache=all, recsize=128k, compr=off. But I'm getting the following randomwrite test result:

    55325 ops, 1844.119 ops/s, (0/1844 r/w), 14.4mb/s, 3649us cpu/op, 0.5ms latency

    which is less than half of that detailed in sec 4.2 of the pdf. Where should I start looking?

    Shareef.

    You are using a 3 way mirror?
    The config in 4.2 is a raid-0 from 4 disks.

    With redundancy this is similar on writes to a 4 x mirror in a multi Raid-10 setup (8 disks).

    Yes, a 3 way mirror. I was assuming these benchmarks would be small enough to be soaked up by the Optane. So am I seeing a negative effect from the underlying vdev?
