    Hi All, I've been running FreeNAS with Windows AD integration successfully for almost a year now.

    Can't Connect to SMB in macOS 10.12?

    Hi, everyone, I just upgraded my FreeNAS to 9.10 so as to take advantage of the features in the newer version of Samba that allegedly lets Final Cut Pro store its library over SMB. However, while I can get AFP to work just fine with the Mac, I can't connect to the SMB shares. In both cases, I...

    It's Time To Stop Saying "CIFS"

    I would like to suggest that the FreeNAS team consider renaming "CIFS" to "SMB". Or at least adding mention of "SMB2" to the user interface and documentation. By way of background, CIFS properly refers only to the original 1990's-era protocol supported by the original Samba. Microsoft began...
