” So, with that disclaimer aside let’s get going: Update 2: This guide was originally written for Free NAS 9.3, I’ve updated it for Free NAS 9.10.
Netapp updating drive firmware
1 for SLOG / ZIL, and one to boot ESXi and install Free NAS to. Also get one (preferably two for a mirror) drives that you will plug into the SATA ports (not on the LSI controller) for the local ESXi data store. If you’re going to use an SSD for SLOG you can over-provision them. I usually install it to a USB drive plugged into the motherboard’s internal header. Choose one (or two) of the local storage disks plugged into your SATA ports (do not add a disk on your LSI controller).
I’m using DC S3700s because that’s what I have, but this doesn’t need to be fast storage, it’s just to put Free NAS on. You can boot into an Ubuntu Live CD and use hdparm, instructions are here: https:// You can also do this after after VMware is installed by passing the LSI controller to an Ubuntu VM (Free NAS doesn’t have hdparm). Update 2016-08-10: But you may want to only go to 20GB depending on your setup! Create a virtual storage network with jumbo frames enabled. Virtual Machine…Create a standard switch (uncheck any physical adapters). Select v Switch1 (which you just created in the previous step), give it a network different than your main network.
Just a warning, that you must keep this Root CA guarded, if a hacker were to access this he could generate certificates to impersonate anyone (including your bank) to initiate a MITM attack.
Also Export the Private Key of the CA and store it some place safe. Change the protocol to HTTPS and select the certificate you created.
Click on the CA you just created, hit the Export Certificate button, click on it to install the Root certificate you just created on your computer.
You can either install it just for your profile or for the local machine, I usually do local machine, and you’ll want to make sure to store it is in the Trusted Root Certificate Authorities store.The Internet of Things (Io T) offers a host of conveniences and automation to both business and consumers.But new privacy and compliance responsibilities are part of this package deal. Interop ITX (formerly known simply as Interop) has shed its old skin as a purely networking and infrastructure focused show and has implemented a community-driven approach to build an agenda that reflects the evolving IT landscape.Edit the virtual machine, under Resources set the CPU Shares to “High” to give Free NAS a higher priority, then under Memory allocation lock the guest memory so that VMware doesn’t ever borrow from it for memory ballooning. Before doing anything let’s upgrade Free NAS to the latest stable under System Update. On my DHCP server I’ll give Free NAS a static/reserved IP, and setup an entry for it on my local DNS server.You don’t want VMware to swap out ZFS’s ARC (memory read cache). So for this example I’ll have a DNS entry on my internal network for stor1.b3Xeon E3-1240v3 ECC Memory 6 hotswap bays with 2TB HGST HDDs (I use RAID-Z2) 4 2.5″ hotswap bays. Resetting Adapter...(Wait a few minutes, at this point Free NAS finally crashed. Free NAS, and then reboot VMware)Some earlier versions of the P20 firmware were buggy, so make sure it’s version P.00 or later.
