I just wondered if to get FreeNAS 11.3 , is it a new install, and not an update, as I expected it to be.
I'm not bothered as such if I have the update / upgrade or not, as my current system is chugging away nicely.
You just need to change what they call trains. It is a setting in the updates menu. You are on the 11.2 train and you need to switch to the 11.3 train. It is a manual switch because some people don't want to jump to the new version as soon as it comes out.
Not difficulties as such, but a couple of problems.
I wanted to change the theme to lighter colours, as the existing theme was too dark for me. After selecting some lighter / different colours, there was nothing to show or say it was selected, and the save button was greyed out. I then tried a different setting in another section of the theme page, but again no save button.
Ok, no big deal as such, but it was what I wanted.
Next, I noticed my cctv cameras were displaying error messages, saying Archive could not be recorded. I thought that was to do with permissions, but after checking, nothing had changed.
Because of the above I reverted back to 11.2-U8, where everything is as i want it.
@avalon60 A significant change in 11.3 is the end of Warden jails, which were still available under 11.2. If you're still using Warden jails under 11.2, you'll need to reconstruct these using iocage jails before upgrading to 11.3.
I am trying to install a plugin but when I click save I get the same error message. Before I created this debacle for my self, the same plugin did install ok etc and worked fine.
Following the instructions in the FreeNAS 11.2-U8 user guide gives the same error. Something must have either been left behind or screwed the plugins install process.
Oh well c'est la vie!
