A few things that took me a minute to realize:
- The "allow tun" checkbox is under "custom properties" now
- When port forwarding you use the WAN IP of the TrueNAS server (I am normally used to using the WAN IP of a particular jail or VM)
This guide woefully needs updating. Badblocks was never designed for drives the size we have available now and as such does not run on them. I've been searching for an alternative and have come up empty.
I have EXACTLY the issues that this person dealt with and, with the others who are assisting me in my efforts to get a balanced and under-control server, this article was mentioned more than once.
Looking through it, I have noted more than a few issues with my build that have strangled throughput to a crawl and eventual SMB disconnect. Same with AFP (yeah, I have Macs and tried that approach too while it's still available in TNC 13x.
I'm VERY glad this is out there where blue-sky "research" is still shown to be valuable even when there seems to be no point to it.
Excellent tips / strategy as not damaging the many little embedded fasteners is very difficult and a "tell" for WD to deny warranty coverage. I stored the "giblets" consisting of the USB-SATA interface, bumpers, LED light pipe, etc. in a sandwich bag alongside the cases (whose laser-etched serial # has to match that of the drive inside the case) in a tote with a expiration date on the outside.
After the warranty period ran out, I recycled the still-pristine cases and contents in the local trash pickup. However, I found a even better use for the innumerable power supplies by sending them to centerclick (https://centerclick.com/ntp/), makers of the excellent NTP 200 server. He uses the same type 12VDC power supply.
There should be a link to this article or the content should be included in the storage section of the TrueNAS doc site.
This was exactly what I was looking for. I am migrating from SATA based workstations to a storage bridge bus (SBB) based Supermicro 6036ST-6LR two node system. The SAS2008 based card is in IR mode but running older (11.0) firmware. I didn't want to migrate to the IT firmware unless required because the RAID HBA is packaged onto the motherboard and has proprietary connections to the midplane. Looks like I just need to upgrade the firmware to 20.00.07.
What brought me here? I see all of the disks in `camcontrol devlist`, I get unique serial numbers when enumerating them with `camcontrol inquiry <disk> -S`. I can add disks to ZFS vdev's in FreeBSD 13.0, but TrueNAS 13-U3 doesn't show any available disks. I was nearly confident I was going to have to go to IT firmware to get FreeNAS to show them as available, and I am unsure if I will be able to use the (Supermicro noted as required RAID functionality) without IR firmware when sharing access between the two nodes to the same storage with RSF-1-HA. It now looks like I just need FW 20.0 on the
I will follow up with edits for any issues I run into... just wanted to share my appreciation for this article.

These scripts are excellent. Phenomenal work.
I am currently adapting the spinpid2.sh script to work with A2SDi motherboards running TrueNAS Scale, which is Debian, and does not have `camcontrol` installed by default. Please contact me if you are interested.
