I'm pleased to announce on behalf of the FreeNAS development team FreeNAS 8.0.1-RELEASE, available for download at:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/freenas/files/FreeNAS-8.0.1/


*** IMPORTANT ***

The image size increased in 8.0.1-BETA3. The new size requires a 2 GB
storage device. The GUI upgrade can be used to upgrade a system from BETA3,
BETA4, or RC1 but upgrades from earlier releases can only be done from the CD.
The other option is to save the config, reinstall the new version, then
restore the config.

Major changes since 8.0.1-RC2:

- django has been updated to 1.3.1 to address multiple security advisories.

- istgt has been updated to 20110928

- Base system has been updated to FreeBSD 8.2-p3, which addresses
http://security.freebsd.org/advisories/FreeBSD-SA-11:05.unix.asc
http://security.freebsd.org/advisories/FreeBSD-SA-11:04.compress.asc

Changes since 8.0.1-RC2

- Fix the regex used to validate iSCSI target names so that - is an
allowed character. (r7827)

- Multiple improvements to the UPS service.
(r7841, r7842, r7843, r7844, r7845, r7846, r7847, r7848, r7849)

- Fix a bug in the GUI where zvols from multiple pools caused GUI corruption.
(r7859)

- Add a button to zpools that will display zpool status in a tab.

- Set each LUN in an iSCSI target to a unique serial number. This allows
vmware ESXi to see multiple LUNs per target. (r7878)

- Change the encryption type in the LDAP config screen to a choicebox
instead of requiring freeform text input. (r7881)

- Remove DDP option from AFP server config. (r7883)

- Fix typo so that hosts allow and deny actually get populated in rsyncd.conf.
(r7906)

- Fix deleting snapshots. (r7916)

- Add a button to volumes to manually kick off a scrub of ZFS volumes. (r7943)

- Fix smartd.conf generation bug. (r7956)

- Fix a bug preventing the import of zpools created on Solaris (r7971)

- Allow adding a public key for user ssh authentication. (r8002)

Changes since 8.0-RELEASE

There's too much to list here, but the high points are:

- Divorced the volume members in the database from the FreeBSD devices.
This resolves an issue where FreeBSD can change devices names and the
GUI doesn't pick up the updates due to the devices names being hard-wired
in the database.

- Support exporting ZFS zvols (virtual devices) as device extents via iSCSI.
8.0 was only able to export physical device nodes or file based extents.

- The GUI now has an event notification system.

- The email backend has been refactored.

- Many many changes in the GUI to help it validate and sanitize inputs that
are passed to the backend daemons.

- Added UPS functionality.

- Added rsync client and server functionality.

- Added the ability to schedule cron jobs in the GUI.

- Vastly improved and reworked snapshot replication.

Errata:

CHAP doesn't work with GlobalSAN initiators on OS X.

Upgrades from FreeNAS 0.7 aren't supported.

The installer doesn't check the size of the install media before attempting
an install. A 2 GB device is required, but the install will appear to
complete successfully on smaller devices, only to fail at boot.

The installer will let you switch from i386 to amd64 architecture and
vice-versa, but some files, such as the rrd files used by the statistics
graphing package are architecture dependent.

How is 8.0.1-RELEASE determining the disks for SMART tests? I have a problem selecting any of the disks in my ZFS pool (two vdevs, 4 disks each) - see the attached screenshot.

I'm using an LSI 9211-8i controller. The following is the output from "smartctl -a" for one of the disks connected to this controller:

Hmmm, It's probably my imagination, but when I tried to upgrade from the GUI / Firmware Update it fails. I've quadruple checked the HASH, and made sure it was for the correct file. It tells me invalid file or checksum and then next to the "Choose File" button, the filename I choose disappeared. I didn't have any problem going from beta4 to RC2.

Yeah, it's my normal luck. I am upgrading from AMD64 - RC2. I've tried rebooting, running sha256 on the file and comparing the checksum..... I had the upgrade file on both my NAS and on the system I'm initiating the upgrade from. It should be a 'firmware update' and not a service pack, although that is another misleading thing that people get mixed up about....

I'm curious to hear if anyone else is having trouble doing the GUI update from RC2.

I just noticed what the problem is I think....
ALL of the hashes above have a space in them!

That was it... but it's weird, you can see the space in the posting and when you copy and paste it, but if you try to edit the post (as a moderator), the spaces aren't there!

Thought you'd be wise to that by now! ;-)

This perpetually annoying issue would be fixed if the OP would put {code} tags around the filenames and hashes. I'd edit the initial post, but don't want to offend.

Edit: Oh sod it, editing the first post. :)

I think we both had the same idea, I was trying to edit it also. I think it was better to get it fixed ASAP than wait for the OP to notice the mistake and have people getting upset... ;-) I'm just getting blind in my mid-age....

- Fixed the mountd noise.
- Quieted down pdbedit a bit (that's what's printing out the tdb* noise above).
- Fixed the httpd noise.

Part of the reason why I hate the name choice. "Service Pack" should be "Hot Patch".

Tried this version. Boot up.. Then update with my config. Reboot and then it stays there hang up at the Press F1 forever. Why: because the installation version creates a 1GB partition, not 2 GB :mad:

When is this bug going to be corrected? Have to go compile my own version :(

Tried this version. Boot up.. Then update with my config. Reboot and then it stays there hang up at the Press F1 forever. Why: because the installation version creates a 1GB partition, not 2 GB :mad:

When is this bug going to be corrected? Have to go compile my own version :(

1. How big is your CF/SD/memstick?
2. How did you upgrade (CD, .xz upgrade image)?

BTW, don't do the update as "firmware update", not "service pack". "service pack" images currently aren't being distributed by the FreeNAS project; given how many people might have been bit by this confusing terminology, I'm tempted just to change the wording and be done with it because Windows users are used to service packs being HUGE updates (even though technically they're updates between official release versions, kind of like a subminor version release).

I've made the install/upgrade process more robust on trunk (after breaking things by accident for a week.. heh), but it didn't get back into 8.0.1 because it was too bleeding edge.

Hi:

1. It's 4GB size
2. I pick up the .iso file and made an fresh and clean installation

Regards.

Anyone else having problems with setting the permissions? I've tried setting them from the GUI, with no result. It just hangs there. Setting them from CLI work fine of course.

Completely clean install from the x64 ISO.

Hmm, seems I'm no longer getting the nightly emails since upgrading. I tried sending a test email from the GUI and that worked fine.

I agree - I haven't received the "security run output" or "daily run output" emails since upgrading from RC2 to Release. Test email is working correctly.

I noticed this in /var/log/maillog which looks like the smoking gun...

Code:
[root@freenas] /var/log# cat maillog

I haven't changed the root user setup - the root user is configured exactly as it was in RC2. I can also confirm the email address for the root user remains correctly set, ie. it is my normal public email address.

Looks like a bug, I just checked my folder for those messages and the last one I got was before updating to 8.01 from RC2. I tried checking my logfile, but it's already rolled over. I'll have to have a look in the morning.... Ugghhh.

I have the same entries in my maillog. Appears to be a bug with the mail configuration. If you try to send a manual mail to root (mail -s "test email" root) you get the same error. If you change the recipient to root@localhost everything appears fine, but no email ever arrives. If you change it to a fully qualified username (e.g. you@yourdomain.com) everything works.

I don't care too much about the nightly emails so I'll probably just wait for the official fix, but for now if you must receive the emails, edit the "daily_output" variable in /etc/defaults/periodic.conf and /conf/base/etc/defaults/periodic.conf to have your fully qualified email address and you should be back in business.
