Quick story: I was running FreeNAS 11.1 with Plex, Radarr, Medusa, SABnzbd, & Tautulli just fine until I tried a latest Plex update which was beyond what FreeNAS 11.1 could handle.... My bad... and I could not revert back. So I decided to finally make the plunge to this new FreeNAS 11.2 (Which I tried in the past and did not like). So I did it, I wiped all of my jails and my data sets besides my data sets which hold all of my movies, tv shows, and files. I am sure I am not the only one that has done or will do this. But this is what I did and hopefully, it will work for you.

After doing my Jail and Data Set wipes, I installed everything manually. Reasons I could not resolve, I could not install any Plugins or Jails from the FreeNAS GUI... but really you don't need to. I did it all manually, and this is exactly what I did. After reading many forum posts and guides, I spent literally four days on this, nothing else, late nights just to get it working. Copy and paste the following if you are in the same or similar situation as me. Also on a side note, I could not get SABnzbd working, I could not find any good guide, so I went to use NZBget. On a second side note, after installing the latest Plex Media Server Plexpass version, I realized Tautulli is no longer needed because the latest and greatest Plex comes with most of the Tautulli features. FYI, I have to volumes from 20x drives, VolumeData and VolumeData2.

FYI, I have to volumes from 20x drives, VolumeData and VolumeData2.
Good guide to start with thanks static but one question?

Any reasons why doing it in 2 separate volumes?

iocage fstab -a plex /mnt/VolumeData/Media /Media nullfs rw 0 0
iocage fstab -a plex /mnt/VolumeData2/Media /Media2 nullfs rw 0 0

10 disks max allowed per volume.

Maybe it is different now. but when I originally built my 20 bay FreeNAS it only let me have a max of 10 disks per RaidZ2 volume. That is why I have two volumes. I just keep all jails and movies on one volume and tv shows and everything else on the other.

Made an update to NZBget guide:

Open NZBget.conf and set the "ControlUsername=" and "ControlPassword="

# Enable Service
iocage exec nzbget sysrc nzbget_enable=YES
iocage exec nzbget sysrc nzbget_conf_dir="/config"

# Start NZBget
iocage exec nzbget service nzbget start

This has never been the case. You wouldn't ordinarily want more than 10 disks in a vdev (though it's certainly possible), but you can have as many vdevs in a pool as you want/need.

Besides the point of my post. That was what I dealt with years ago and I tried to make it one large volume but was not able to.

Updated adding the commands to mount remote storage on a Synology. I ran out of space on my 40tb FreeNAS, so procured an RS814 Synology and bought 4x 6TB Red Pro 256MB Cache drives.

The nzbget guide doesnt seem to work for some reason.
Followed it fully using my own mnt points, and when running service it says:
root@freenas[~]# iocage exec nzbget service nzbget start
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/nzbget: /usr/local/bin/nzbget-D: not found
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/nzbget: 16: Syntax error: ";;" unexpected

I think i figured out a possible bandaid fix

i 'consoled' into the jail with # iocage console jail_name
thrn ran pip as python module # python2 -m pip install --upgrade pip

rinse and repeat module step for pip lines

seems like an environment variable issue idk how to fix
