Does FreeNAS Mini - Network Attached Storage (Diskless) support virtualization (VMs)?
I would like to run one VM using FreeNAS and need to make sure FreeNAS Mini - Network Attached Storage (Diskless) meets the bhyve hardware requirements.
I have previously tried to run VMs unsuccessfully...
I got into FreeNAS with enthusiast hardware because I didn't think it mattered. Then I put a bunch of data that I care about onto it. Then I read the guide from @cyberjock and learned a lot. I have a pretty decked out 30GB RAM (non-ecc) i7 x58 build that I now think is going to need to go to...
