Just took the plunge. No issue so far. Plugins work fine (old GUI) : transmission, urbackup, minidlda. I'll report back later if something comes up.

Went from 11.1-U4 to U5. No issues. Took about 10 minutes.

Did you find how to get into the new UI? There is no link to try the beta UI that I can find...

Just type in "/ui" after your URL and it comes up. But I get the missing graphics and scrambled interface at the moment.

Upgrade from U4 went smooth. After reboot I got a yellow flashing warning from the alert system in the upper right corner, with the warning "smartd_daemon is not running". A little googling showed that happend to other people over the years, and it was solved for me by going through the GUI to storage / view disks / and then disabling SMART on my USB boot drives.

Error 201:[ENOMETHOD] Method "summary" not found in "network.general"

New UI isn't supposed to be ready until 11.2 which is still a couple months out.

Uptime approx 12 hours with no apparent problems so far (backup of three Windows clients to SMB share using Veeam Agent for Windows, snapshots, replication to local pool). This is a pure file server setup without Jails, Plugins and VMs.

Link to new GUI has been removed because of the all the problems they were having it with (I believe I saw a bug ticket opened on this). They still plan to bring it back in 11.2 when it is more feature complete, polished, and feedback is incorporated.

I haven't updated to 11.1 U5 yet, I'm going to wait a couple of more days. I don't have time to fix a system that breaks because of it.

I am of the same mind right now however when I first got into FreeNAS, I was always updating to the latest build, or custom builds I created.

From the release notes:
Due to the proximity of the upcoming 11.2-BETA1 release, the “Try the BETA UI!” link has been removed from the login screen for 11.1-U5. Users who wish to test the new UI before BETA1 is released are encouraged to create a clone of their current boot environment, switch to the nightlies train, and update to the nightlies. This ensures that there is a stable boot environment to reboot into and upgrade from, once BETA1 is released.

Support for creating warden jails via the GUI was removed back in the 11.1 release - iocage was declared the way to go, moving forward. Fine. I like progress.

However, in order to create/manage iocage jails, you needed to use the beta, fairly-broken-but-working-ok-enough-for-iocage-jail-management GUI (basically, ignore all the error messages). Fine. Seems a little premature, but, yeah, it worked (mostly). I'm sure a lot of iocage jails got created. I've got two iocage jails now, only because I was forced to move on from warden. Not complaining, just saying that's how I ended up with iocage jails. I would have stuck with what I knew (warden) had I not been prodded to iocage. So that was a good idea.

But... hmmm... now we're told, in order to get to the beta UI (only way to manage our new iocage jails), we need to "create a clone of [our] current boot environment, switch to the nightlies train, and update to the nightlies." Really? You shouldn't add a required feature (only way to do iocage jail management) that's only a hyperlink away (“Try the BETA UI!”) and then, in a later release, essentially remove that feature. OK, you can get there, but... nah.

This is going to make me stick at 11.1-U4 until iocage jail management becomes easy to access again. 11.2?

I'm not getting "update available" e-mails anymore and I thought it had been a while so I checked this morning, assuming that this update had been out for some time.

Thought I was in trouble when the installation stalled at 60% with a warning about:

Code:

but it rebooted and is back up and running fine.

This was added as a recommendation as it ensures you have the latest UI plus a path to upgrade.

As mentioned in this thread, you can still use /ui but there have not been any updates to the new UI on the 11.1 branch (as all of the new UI work is happening on the 11.2 branch). We were expecting to not have any more updates to the 11.1 branch (certainly not before the new BETA launch) but needed to create an update to address some bugs. It didn't make sense to let people continue to login to a very outdated BETA link when cloning a boot env and using the up-to-date BETA is an option.

Our test FreeNAS VM upgraded from u4 to u5 without issue. We only use FreeNAS for file services with NFS and SMB so I can't speak to jails and whatnot. Our test system accepts replicated snapshots to give it some activity.

We may schedule our production replication target for an upgrade this weekend.

(Our primary system is still 9.10.2-U3 because no one wants to do the paperwork to upgrade and we're planning a hardware refresh in 2019 that will replace that server anyway. Might as well wait until then and do them both at the same time.)

Cheers,
Matt
