    smbd crashing on heavy use

    Hi All, I'm a long time reader of these forums and have found them very useful, but this problem has got me stumped and I can't find any useful threads. Due to some poor boot media choices, some poor design choices in 9.0 and some bad luck, I had to rebuild my FreeNAS from scratch recently on...

    What if the FreeNAS host fails?

    Hello. Newbie here, never built a FreeNAS setup or ZFS setup before this. Please pardon my innocence. I'm thinking of building out a backup NFS server for our cluster based on a SuperMicro server as specified in my prior question: FreeNAS on SuperMicro SuperStorage Server 6049P-E1CR36H...

    FreeNAS Crash Troubleshooting

    My FreeNAS box is randomly shutting down without notice. It just crashes and shuts down very abruptly. My first thought was that I might have some bad RAM (I have an old refurb kit) so I went out and bought a new kit of RAM (24GB). This did not help the situation and the server keeps crashing...
