    OFFLINE, ONLINE of encrypted disk does not work

    I might be doing something wrong but can't figure out what. Before going live, I thought it would be a good idea to test things with the help of a virtual machine. The result was a vm containing 2 disks for the operating system and 4 in an enrypted raidz2 as storage pool. When playing around...

    Resilver restarts when taking drive offline?

It was going along pretty good, about 10% per day. Around the 5th day, it slowed down to about 3% or...

    I'm wondering if it's possible to run Plex Media Server on FreeNAS in a local network without Internet connection? I've had it connected to a internet based network before, but after I moved it I can't activate/startup the Plex plugin in FreeNAS, or any other plugin for that matter. Thanks in...
