    Docker Volumes on TrueNAS CORE Shares

    My idea was to set up an Ubuntu VM on my TrueNAS CORE 12.0-U1 box running Docker and use a share for all the persistent data. This will have many benefits like snapshots and easy access to the data. Very soon I realized that it is not as easy as it looks. Containers really often want to set...

    Guide for FreeNAS 11.2 NFS sharing with Rancher.

    Can anyone direct me to a guide on how to expose NFS shares to Rancher OS in FreeNAS 11.2? The documentation for this (16.3.6. Configuring Persistent NFS-Shared Volumes) is thin and I'm still not able to get it to work. Thanks for any help.

    Another 11.0 Docker Setup Tutorial - This one using Ubuntu Server VM

    I originally wrote this for emby users, but because this is certainly relevant to freenas users, I'll cross-post it here, since once you get docker working, you can use it to set up any container you see fit. I will use emby server as my container of choice though. Here's the original I wrote -...
