    Minimum VM Memory Size

    The minimum VM memory size is set to 512M right now in FreeNAS 11.1, which seems completely random and arbitrary. Is there any actual basis for this? It is basically being quite wasteful for ultra light weight VMs that don't use anywhere near that much RAM. The bhyve docs itself even states the...

    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 -...

    FreeNAS 11 RC4 VMs fail to start with NIC device added

    I'm on FN11-RC4. Creating a VM from the GUI and adding disk, VNC and CDROM seems to work fine. This allows me to get the VM to a RUNNING state, connect over VNC (with high image quality) and start the OS installation of ubuntu server 16.04. However, when activating a NIC device for a VM it...
