Hello all,

in the past I only used one USB Stick to run FreeNAS from.
Now I experienced it the second time, that my boot device got corrupt.
So I removed it. Formatted it. And flashed an old backup Image of the running install.

Now I want to get a "two usb stick boot devices (redundant)" setup running.

Is there a way to use the GUI and a running FreeNAS system and add another USB Stick, clone the existing stick to it and let it be recognized as redundant boot device !?

Or do I have to start a NEW Install on both usb sticks and than recall the configuration from an existing config backup?


Thanks a lot !

Cheers
Hossa

System -> boot or thereabouts.

But I prefer the fresh install and upload config method. It's painless.

Hi,

I did it the "GUI way". Worked like a charm!

Thanks a lot!
